Police are investigating a carjacking in the same New Jersey community where a lawyer was killed in a carjacking at an upscale mall last month.
Police say a suspect or suspects approached the driver of a black Porsche Cayenne outside an apartment complex off Morris Turnpike in Short Hills at about 9 p.m. Tuesday.
The victim was forced out of the car but no weapon was shown, according to police. The suspect or suspects fled in the vehicle, which was new and had temporary New Jersey tags.
The driver did not suffer serious injuries. Police were expected to release more information Wednesday.
Four men charged in the case have pleaded not guilty to felony murder and other charges. Prosecutors have not said who fired the fatal shot.
Officials in New Jersey have warned drivers about the growing number of carjackings in Essex County. One recent victim told NBC 4 New York Tuesday his thieves are still targeting him weeks after he was carjacked in Newark, taking out credit cards in his name and using his personal information for fraud.
