Michael Bradley, assistant director of investigations for Public Safety, said that he didn’t believe there were weapons involved and no property was taken.

Bradley said that he didn’t believe there were any injuries.

According to Bradley, the investigation will be turned over to either the Newark Police Department or the Essex County Sheriff’s Office. Bradley explained that it depends on whether the event took place in Ivy Hill Park or outside of it that determines who investigates, and he was uncertain about the exact location.

Neither the Essex County Sheriff’s Office nor the Newark Police Department could be reached for comment.
