ELIZABETH – Last week, a Union County Superior Court judge ruled that the defendant in last December’s fatal shooing outside a Union skating rink could be tried as an adult.

Union County Prosecutor Theodore Romankow released the name of the suspect, Jaquan Bell, after the ruling. Bell’s name had been withheld from the press because he was just 16 at the time of the shooting.

Nearly 700 people gathered at Skate 22 in Union for a Christmas night party that was heavily promoted on websites like Myspace, Romankow said. The party, which drew people between the ages of 13 and 25, was scheduled to go from 8:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. but ended early due to numerous fights that broke out inside the rink, the prosecutor said.
