AG investigating officer-involved shooting

 

The New Jersey Attorney General’s Office is investigating a fatal police-involved shooting that occurred on June 7. One male civilian sustained fatal injuries, but his identity is not being released at this time.

According to the preliminary investigation, officers of the Bayonne Police Department responded to a 911 call at approximately 6:30 a.m. reporting a domestic incident at a residence in the first block of West 1st St.

Officers encountered an adult male resident. During the encounter, one or more officers fired their service weapons, fatally wounding the male resident, according to the AG’s Office.

Officers rendered medical aid until emergency medical personnel arrived. EMTs transported the man to Bayonne Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at approximately 7:43 a.m.

The investigation is being conducted pursuant to a law enacted in January 2019, which requires that the Attorney General’s Office conduct investigations of a person’s death that occurs during an encounter with a law enforcement officer acting in the officer’s official capacity or while the decedent is in custody.

The investigation is ongoing, and no further information is being released by the AG’s Office at this time.
