Grand Jury Hearing On Gaymon Shooting Case
With the investigation nearing completion, a grand jury is scheduled to hear the case involving the fatal shooting of the president/CEO of the Credit Union of Atlanta by an undercover sheriff’s detective by May.
Chief Anthony Ambrose with the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office told Credit Union Times that "the investigation is almost complete. The case [involving CU of Atlanta CEO DeFarra Gaymon] will go before the grand jury within the next 60 to 90 days."
Ambrose said that because the investigation is still active, he could not release any details, including if any witnesses had come forward. He did confirm that the undercover sheriff’s detective who allegedly shot Gaymon is still working with the Essex County Sheriff's Department, but he was not sure in what capacity.
Kevin Lynch, public information officer with the sheriff’s department, said the detective is still working but in an administrative desk capacity with no contact with the public pending the grand jury. Credit Union Times reported last October that Esposito had been reassigned to the Office of Emergency Management until after the case was presented to the grand jury.
Gaymon was shot and killed July 16, 2010, at a Newark, N.J., park during an alleged sting operation. He was in town to attend a high school reunion.
