Jesus Take The Wheel: Couple Killed In Possible Carjacking

- By Bossip Staff

This is soooo sad:

Just hours after friends joyfully toasted them at their engagement party, a couple lay dead on a Jersey City street this morning, shot during what police said was a possible carjacking.

College sweethearts Michael Muchioki, 27, and Nia Haqq, 25, had planned to marry next April, those close to them said. On Saturday evening, the couple celebrated their engagement with friends and family at Delta’s, a soul food restaurant in New Brunswick, and then at a larger gathering at Perle, a club and lounge also in the Middlesex County city. Afterward, a friend said, they begged off going to a diner, opting to return to Muchioki’s Jersey City apartment in Haqq’s Honda CRV. Police said the couple were shot around 3 a.m., a few doors from Muchioki’s home.

Today, as the news spread, their loved ones, shocked and devastated, arrived at Muchioki’s Randolph Avenue home. Many stood outside crying and hugging one another. Muchioki, who had attended the New Jersey Institute of Technology, left the school before graduation for a job involving computer software, said Kenny Simmons, a close friend. He worked as a software engineer in Jersey City. Haqq, who has ties to the Trenton area, graduated from the College of New Jersey. She was an associate producer for an affiliate of Nickelodeon in New York, several friends said. Her family could not be reached yesterday.

The couple had met through Greek life at their colleges, and their fraternity brothers and sorority sisters had a strong presence at the celebrations Saturday night and at Muchioki’s home today. Muchioki was a member of Alpha Phi Alpha, and Haqq of Alpha Kappa Alpha. Friends, who described the couple as popular, positive people without enemies, said they were stunned anyone would harm them.

So sad to see such a young and positive couple with a bright future ahead of them lose their lives just like that. Our thoughts and prayers go out to their families. R.I.P.

    Wth man???? Everyday it’s another sad story that could have been prevented. People are kr8zy because ain’t no jobs and no opportunities. Create jobs and give second chances and we will see a change in the crime rate.

    I have a feeling that is wasn’t necessarily just a car jacking. Who would want a Honda CRV? I think it was more to it than that. But regardless, it is a terrible loss. Two young people on the cusp of living their lives together. Such a shame.

  • Plagueis The Wise

    This saddens me. Two positive people on the way to do good things are cut down by demons. Why can’t we have anything today without idiots trying to take it?

  • ALWAYS WITH ALWAYS 4 U

    THIS IS SO SAD AND TO SOME SHOCKING. THERE ARE SO MANY OF THESE MURDERS THAT NEVER MAKE IT INTO THE MEDIA AND THEY ARE HAPPENING EVERY MINUTE ALL OVER THE WORLD. IF YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES AND IMMAGINE THIS PLANET WITHOUGHT THE MAN MADE STRUCTURES, PAVED STREETS AND BEAUTIFUL LANDSCAPE. YOU WOULD SEE THAT YOU ARE IN A PLACE THAT CAN ONLY BE REFERED TO AS TORTURUS, A PLACE VERY CLOSE TO HELL. START SEEING PEOPLE BASED ON THEIR DEMONIC ACTIONS AND YOU WILL SEE THAT THEIR APPEARANCE IS NOTHING MORE THAN AN ILLUSION.
