Rutgers Football Player Charged In Attempted Double-Murder Plot

A linebacker on the University of Rutgers football team is in hot water after he was accused Tuesday of involvement in a plot to murder two members of a friend’s family, authorities said.

Izaia Bullock, 22, a junior from Linden, NJ faces two counts of first-degree attempted murder and two counts of first-degree conspiracy to commit murder.



“They said the charges came after determining that on Monday, “Bullock initiated a plot to murder the family members of an acquaintance.”

The targets, who are not affiliated with Rutgers, were not injured, a prosecutor’s spokeswoman said.”

Bullock joined the team in September 2017 through a walk-on tryout.

Bullock is being held at the Middlesex County Adult Correction Center before a first appearance in Superior Court in New Brunswick.
