LONG BRANCH — An arrest was made in one of five shootings during the Columbus Day weekend, which led to the cancellation of a high school football game.

Three shootings took place over nine hours on Oct. 10 including one in broad daylight at about 2:45 p.m. at the intersection of Halberton Place and North 5th Avenue, according to Acting Prosecutor Raymond S. Santiago.

Shots were also fired at 11:45 p.m. on the 300 block of Long Branch Avenue.

Donte Gibson, 27, of Long Branch, was arrested in connection with a shooting around 9:45 p.m. at a convenience store on the 800 block of Broadway in West Long Branch.

The victim was dropped off at a hospital for treatment of injuries to his leg and forearm and released. He was charged with one count of first-degree attempted murder, one count of second-degree possession of a firearm for an unlawful purpose, and one count of second-degree unlawful possession of a weapon.

Two other shootings in Long Branch and West Long Branch are also believed to be connected for reasons Santiago did not disclose.

The homecoming game at Long Branch High School scheduled for Oct. 13 was forfeited by opponent Neptune Township when the athletic director said a team could not safely take the field.
