Russell Heller, a councilman in Milford, New Jersey, was shot dead in his car.
Heller, 51, was shot outside the PSE&G Somerset Central Division Headquarters in Franklin Township by a disgruntled co-worker on Wednesday morning, according to reports.
The local politician was reportedly a senior distribution supervisor who had been with the company for 11 years.
“The Milford Borough Council is deeply saddened by the loss and our hearts go out to his family,” Milford Mayor Henri Schepens said.
“He was so full of life, it’s just unbelievable that he’s gone. Something like this has never happened in borough history. We are very shaken by this.”
Heller’s death comes one week after the killing of Sayreville Councilwoman Eunice Dwumfour.
