New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy informed reporters on Thursday that Eunice Dwumfour was the first sitting elected official to be shot and killed in office in the state in recent memory.

According to law enforcement authorities briefed on the inquiry, there does not appear to be a clear motivation for Dwumfour’s murder. However, ABC News has been told by sources that police have her phone and are looking into every element of her life, including her personal life, her career, and her religion, to determine what may have caused this.

Prosecutor for Middlesex County, Yolanda Ciccone, told ABC News that she does not believe the councilwoman’s political affiliation played a role in the murder.

From what we can piece together, Dwumfour had just dropped someone off at her townhouse and was on her way somewhere else when her attacker came up behind her on foot.

According to ABC News’s sources, it appears the two did not speak to one another.

More than ten rounds were heard by witnesses, according to further accounts.

In 2021, Dwumfour was voted to the council while also holding down the dual roles of business analyst and emergency medical technician.

They had only been married a short time, but she already had a 12-year-old daughter. Dwumfour was also well-respected in the Newark community for her role as a church leader.

Bob Hugin, chair of the New Jersey Republican State Committee, called Dwumfour’s death “senseless violence.”

“We will remember Eunice for her relentless service to the community and her deep and profound Christian faith,” Hugin added.
