Home Invasion Suspect Shot by Police Officer

Officials have released the name of a home invasion suspect who was shot and killed by a northern New Jersey police officer who was trying to apprehend him.

Passaic County prosecutors say 31-year-old John Murray of Haledon was armed with a knife when he was confronted early Saturday by the Paterson officer, whose name has not been disclosed. The officer had approached Murray because he fit the description of a man wanted in connection with the home invasion.

A struggle ensued, and the officer fired one round which hit the suspect.

The man was taken to a hospital, where he died a short time later. The officer also was taken to the hospital for an evaluation, but further details on his condition have not been disclosed.
