UNION, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — New Jersey State Police shot and killed a man after he drove a stolen Jeep toward them, authorities said.
The shooting occurred around 5:45 p.m. Tuesday at the Mill Run Apartment Complex in Union Township. The troopers were conducting surveillance on the Jeep, which had been carjacked from its owner on April 13 in Bloomfield, according to the state attorney general’s office.
Daniel Wolfe, 35, whose last known address was in Sayreville, arrived on scene in a pickup truck and soon got into the Jeep, authorities said. Wolfe had been identified as a suspect in the carjacking, but officials did not provide further information.
