The investigation into the shooting death on Sundays of the son federal judge Salas continued Monday with the FBI naming a dead attorney as the “primary suspect.”
The FBI identified attorney Roy Den Hollander as the suspect in the shooting in a Monday afternoon tweet and added Hollander had shot himself dead. A spokesperson for the FBI’s Newark, New Jersey, office declined to comment further, but Hollander’s website describes him as an “anti-feminist lawyer.”
Salas’ son, Daniel Anderl, and husband, defense attorney Mark Anderl, were shot in their New Jersey home in North Brunswick Township. According to the Associated Press, the attack began with a man who posed as a delivery driver and knocked on the door.
Francis “Mac” Womack told ABC News that Daniel Anderl was “shot through the heart” and died. ABC News, citing law enforcement, added Mark Anderl is in critical condition. Hollander died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, the Associated Press reported.
“Judge Salas and her family are in our thoughts at this time as they cope with this senseless act,” New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy said in a Sunday tweet.
