Two men were charged Monday in the weekend shooting at an off-campus house party that left a Seton Hall University student dead and four other people wounded. One was arrested, while the second remained at large.

Nicholas Welch was arrested Monday night at his home, on the same block as the house where the party was held, authorities said.

A second man, 19-year-old Marcus Bascus, was being sought. Both men were charged with murder, conspiracy and weapons offenses. Police believe Welch was the shooter and that Bascus provided him with the gun, either a .357- or .38-caliber weapon, based on shell casings found at the scene.

Text continues after Pictures of the week gallery:

Welch was being held on $2 million bail and was expected to make an initial court appearance Tuesday or Wednesday. He “didn’t say much of anything” when he was arrested around 9 p.m., Acting Essex County Prosecutor Robert Laurino said at a news conference.

Nineteen-year-old Seton Hall student Jessica Moore, an honors student from Disputanta, Va., who was majoring in psychology, died from her injuries Saturday afternoon, hours after the early morning shooting.
