Linden Police later found Brighton at a nearby medical center with multiple gunshot wounds.
He was then rushed to University Hospital in Newark, where he remains hospitalized, police said. Elliott was charged the same day as the shooting for allegedly interfering with the investigation, police said. Anyone with information about this matter is still being urged to contact Linden Police Department Detective Tim Hubert atExt.
