MS-13 street gang and allegedly goes by the street name “Mousy.”

06:46 | , ,

Kelvin Mejia, of West Fourth Street, is accused of first-degree attempted murder and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, according to the complaint filed in Superior Court in Somerville.
Witnesses identified Mejia as the shooter, and he was arrested Nov. 2, when detectives convinced him to surrender to North Plainfield police, authorities said.
The attack occurred at about 7:25 p.m. on Coddington Avenue, Somerset County Prosecutor Wayne Forrest has said.
The victims, who were then 11 and 16, were standing with others on a porch when someone fired from an unknown location. The 16-year-old sustained a wound just above his left collar bone, and the 11-year-old was shot in the leg, Forrest said. Their injuries were not life-threatening, and they have since been released from the hospital.
Mejia fled the scene in a car driven by Santos Reyes-Villatoro, 36, of Tea Street in Bound Brook, Forrest has said. Reyes-Villatoro, authorities said, is a member of the MS-13 street gang and allegedly goes by the street name “Mousy.” Authorities believe Mejia was associated with the gang, but they do not believe the shooting was gang-related, Forrest said.
Reyes-Villatoro was indicted in January on charges of first-degree attempted murder and conspiracy to commit murder.
Before the attack, some of the people who present at the Coddington Avenue address had a confrontation with Mejia and others at a Plainfield supermarket, according to North Plainfield Detective Tomasz Florek's affidavit. Several alleged threats were made during the heated confrontation, Florek wrote.
