SOUTH RIVER, N.J. (AP) — Authorities are investigating a police shooting that left a man wounded in central New Jersey.
Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce Kaplan says the 51-year-old South River man was brandishing a knife when he confronted two borough officers at an apartment complex early Saturday. One of the officers then shot the man, whose name was not disclosed.
The man was hospitalized in serious but stable condition. Neither officer was injured in the confrontation, but authorities would not identify them or provide further details on the shooting.
