Salem County Prosecutor John Lenahan says police have not identified a person of interest as of early Wednesday night.

Lenahan says 23-year-old Sabir Lynard (sabeer Leonard) of Carneys Point surrendered 30 minutes after the exchange. He remains hospitalized with a gunshot wound.

No officers were injured.

Lenahan says police spotted a vehicle around 1 a.m. Wednesday that was reported stolen from a nearby apartment complex in Carneys Point, where Lynard also lives.

When police pursued, the vehicle left the roadway and two suspects fled on foot into a wooded area. When officers approached, they were met with gunfire, and the other suspect soon fled.
