Student fatally shot inside fraternity house near campus in Newark; suspects at large

5/2/16
NEWARK, New Jersey (WABC) --
A 23-year-old student was fatally shot during a robbery at a fraternity house in Newark early Monday near the New Jersey Institute of Technology campus.

The shooting happened at about 3 a.m. inside the Tau Kappa Epsilon house on Dr Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

Investigators say two masked men went into the back door of the home, tried to rob the students inside and shot one of them.

The victim was rushed to University Hospital in Newark, where he was pronounced dead.

He has been identified as Joseph Micalizzi of Freehold.

Micalizzi was a junior majoring in mechanical engineering. He made the dean's list in the fall and was in his second year at NJIT after transferring from Brookdale Community College, the university said.

No arrests were immediately made. Police were looking for at least two suspects.

Sources tell Eyewitness News the suspects discarded the clothing used in the robbery, masks and black garments, down the street.

Student Killed During Robbery at NJ Fraternity House: Police
"Our thoughts and prayers are with the member's friends and family," fraternity says
By Jen Maxfield and Katherine Creag
Published 2 hours ago


Police investigate the shooting death of an NJIT student at a frat house near campus.


A New Jersey Institute of Technology student was fatally shot at his Newark fraternity house during a robbery early Monday morning, police say.

Shots were fired in a robbery attempt at about 3:30 a.m. at the Tau Kappa Epsilon house on Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard, police said.

The victim, 23-year-old Joseph Micalizzi, was taken to University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Micalizzi studied mechanical engineering and graduated from Freehold Township High School in 2011.

His best friend from high school, Tyler Gdovian, said that last time he talked to Micalizzi he mentioned not feeling safe at the frat house. Micalizzi told his friend he had been robbed twice that semester.

"No one wants to hear this news," Gdovian said.

NJIT said that it was "saddened" by the death and that the school is extending thoughts and prayers to Micalizzi's family and friends. The national organization that oversees the TKE chapter at NJIT likewise said it was saddened by the shooting.

Streets surrounding the fraternity house were cordoned off Monday morning as police investigated.

Students said they woke up Monday to an email alert about the killing. One, junior Asad Ahmed , said he's now worried about his safety.

"I can't even walk around the block," he said. "That's how scary this is now."

It's the second fatal shooting in Newark involving a college student in the last month.

On April 10, Rutgers University - Newark student Shani Patel was shot and killed at his off-campus apartment. Marcus Feliz, 25, was arrested in the Toms River 21-year-old's death.

Authorities and the college are offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in Micalizzi's death.

Anyone with information should call the Essex County Prosecutor's Office at 1-877-TIPS-4-EC.

A vigil has been held for a New Jersey Institute of Technology student shot to death during a burglary at a fraternity house near the school.

Joseph Micalizzi was killed early Monday at the Tau Kappa Epsilon house.

People formed a ring at the Newark campus Tuesday night, lighting candles in Micalizzi's memory and sharing memories they had with him.

The Freehold man had been a member of the fraternity and a mechanical engineering major. He was in his second year at NJIT after transferring from Brookdale Community College in Monmouth County.

The university says it plans to ramp up patrols and distribute information on safety resources, including campus police escorts.

Essex County prosecutors say no arrests have been made and no suspects have been identified.

Cops arrested two people Friday in the killing of a New Jersey Institute of Technology student during a burglary at his fraternity house.

Nafee Cotman, 18, and Taquan Harris, 22, were taken into custody and charged with the murder of Joseph Micalizzi, 23, who was fatally shot early Monday.

Cops said Friday that Irvington resident Cotman was accompanied by 22-year-old Taquan Harris, of Newark, when they broke into the back door of Micalizziís frat house and shot him twice.

In addition to murder, both men face robbery, burglary and weapons charges.

Bail for Cotman was set at $1 million. The bail for Harris was not immediately available.

Micalizzi was a mechanical engineering major at the time of his death and his good grades landed him on the deanís list last fall.

He had been living in the Tau Kappa Epsilon house, which is situated across the street from the Rutgers-Newark campus ó near where a student was murdered in a double shooting last month.

After Micalizziís death, NJIT offered a $10,000 reward leading to the successful prosecution of those responsible.
