A northern New Jersey man broke into a liquor store and got into a fight with police just hours after he was released from jail, authorities said Sunday.
Police say the burglaries happened at Freeland Liquor & Wine. Owner Berihu Mesfin said he changed the metal gate for one that looked more like a chain-link to please the community.
Police said an unknown suspect entered Chestnut Wine and Liquors and shot 28-year-old James Wilson on Friday at 9:30 p.m.
