Republican Sayreville Councilwoman Eunice Dwumfour, 30, was killed outside of her home in New Jersey Wednesday evening following a shootout.

Dwumfour was shot multiple times according to police, as she was “while returning back home,” according to a former colleague, Mahesh Chitnis’s Facebook post.

Multiple reports are indicating that the shooting was believed to be a targeted killing, however, no motive has been released at this time.

Governor Phil Murphy issued a statement about her death, saying:

“I am stunned by the news of Sayreville Councilwoman Eunice Dwumfour’s murder last evening in an act of gun violence,” adding, “Her career of public service was just beginning, and by all accounts she had already built a reputation as a committed member of the Borough Council who took her responsibility with the utmost diligence and seriousness.”

The prosecutor’s office issued a statement saying:

“This is an active and ongoing investigation anyone with information or surveillance footage of the area is asked to call Detective Rebecca Morales of the Sayreville Police Department at 732-727-4444 or Detective Michelle Coppola of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office 732-745-3477,”


  1. It’s clear that we will soon achieve Orwell’s massive surveillance state because only with video
    cameras everywhere can we hope to reestablish personal safety in this country.

  2. OH, another gun violence. Certainly in NJ, not an assasination by a murderer who if willing to kill could care not about using a gun. Yeah lets focus on the gun instead of the real people behind this. Since NJ has such strict unconstitutional gun laws anyway, maybe the gun is the issue as lord knows with all the laws passed no one should have an illegal gun if they want to commit murder. Ridiculous !

    1. This is why criminals, in an un-civil society, are to be separated from the law abiding. IF they are not, what the hell are we paying property taxes for? RESTORE the republic… make the taxpayers “We the People” again

    2. My heart breaks for this lovely Counselor Woman and for her family.
      My first gut reaction, this was a warning shot if you’re black, a faithful Christian and a Republican you’re not wanted in New Jersey. I’ve lived here sadly for way too long. I’m from a free state, I know communism when I see it I’m living in a communist state, these gun laws are already pathetic. If only she had a gun, to defend herself. NJ is so corrupt it’s been run by the same party for over 30 years. Christie for awhile but he was all by himself that’s why he didn’t get much done. But I can say PROUDLY Christie was PRO-LIFE.
      He also saw the need to Self Protect, thank God. People don’t realize, just the fact that we are a 2A country we’re all safer bc no one knows whether or not we have a gun.. hello duh.
      Murphy believing his pushing evil sex acts to kindergartners, is ok. Every Democrat state is lawless right now.
      The God who we thank for our Constitution, Help Us.

  3. Thanks for your insincere fake sympathy Phill, we all know your happy that a conservative got wacked. We’re not buying it for second.

  4. Gee, another shooting in New Jersey, what a shocker! Politics is tough up in Jersey so you better know the rules before you get in it. They play for keeps.

  5. It seems pretty clear that this was a personal attack on this young woman that someone with a serious grudge decided to take. Whoever it is should be caught, prosecuted to the full extent of the law and imprisoned for the remainder of whatever life they may have left! The choice to use a gun was simply a means to achieve the objective and isn’t relevant to the nature or the violence of the crime, it could have been anything, but the act that this creten chose to execute this young woman is what is at issue. There is never a time when it is justifiable to kill another human being with any instrument other than defending ones life!

  6. the White supremacist are shooting their own? Must be the ones that are also killing the blacks, every weekend in Chicago. Will we ever learn…
