The Essex County Prosecutor’s Office says a woman called police to say her estranged husband had broken into her apartment.

Officials say that when they arrived, 30-year-old Abdul Kamal threatened officers and refused to keep one of his hands out of his pocket.

Police say they used pepper spray, but when the man continued to make threats, three of them shot at him, firing a total of 15 rounds. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

The prosecutor’s office says Kamal had a history of domestic violence and that the shooting by police was found to be justified.

The case is still to be presented to a grand jury after further investigation.
