Rowan University Freshman Shot in Drive-by at Off-Campus Party

A gunman hanging out the passenger side of a car shot a teenager outside of an off-campus party at a South Jersey apartment complex overnight.

Gunfire rang out outside the Campus Crossing Apartments on Mullica Road in Glassboro around 1 a.m. Sunday leaving a Rowan freshman — identified by the university as Anayochukwu Logan Iloabanafor — shot in both legs, said Glassboro Police.

Medics rushed the student to Cooper University Medical Center in stable condition. Doctors treated and released Iloabanafor later Sunday, said police.

The freshman was expected to make a full recovery, said Rowan University spokesman Joe Cardona.

Witnesses at the same party as Iloabanafor told investigators that they saw someone fire multiple shots from a revolver while hanging out the side of a vehicle.

Police later spotted a vehicle matching witnesses' descriptions nearby and pulled it over. Investigators questioned one man in the car before later releasing him while they held the other man — identified as Steven Moore, 23, of Sicklerville — on outstanding warrants.

The shooting happened at a complex popular with college students.

A message on The Crossings website describes the complex: “The Crossings at Glassboro provides an affordable and private home away from home where students can live and study off-campus in Glassboro, NJ. Our apartments serve Rowan University, Gloucester County College and Camden County College, among others.“

Police asked anyone with information to contact Det. Jack Manning at 856-881-1500 or submit a tip online.
