Man charged with shooting at 2 police officers
BRIDGETON, N.J. (AP) — Authorities have arrested a 29-year-old man who they say fired at two southern New Jersey police offers responding to a burglary call last week.
The Daily Journal reported that Tyshaun Milledge, of Fairfield, was arrested Friday and charged with criminal attempted homicide and other charges.
It wasn’t immediately known if he had an attorney.
The two officers were not hurt in the shooting Wednesday at a duplex on North Street in Bridgeton. Police Chief Mark Ott said the shot was fired as the officers were walking on the sidewalk in front of the residence.
Milledge was rested after he was found hiding in the attic of a home.
The New Jersey State Policemen’s Benevolent Association has offered a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the shooter.
