RIDGEWOOD, N.J. – Officials say two cousins have been indicted for using large-capacity weapons to fire more than 40 bullets into a northern New Jersey church recognized as a nationally historic structure.
The Record reports Thursday (http://bit.ly/1Uqkf8T ) 22-year-old Joseph Galli, of Somerville, and 23-year-old Alexander Norrell, of Ridgewood, were indicted on gun and property damage charges for shooting up Old Paramus Reformed Church.
Police say no one was inside the church when the men opened fire Nov. 16 and Dec. 26, 2014. Police say they caused more than $2,000 worth of damage.
A stained glass window dating to 1875 was shattered.
Prosecutors believe the church was targeted because it was isolated, not because it was a house of worship.
Information on their lawyers wasn't immediately available.
