Elderly man found dead in his NJ home; 1 man in police custody
ELMWOOD PARK — An elderly man was found dead inside his own home, following a stand-off situation with a younger male on Tuesday morning, according to authorities.
Police and the Bergen County SWAT team were called to a Beechwood Avenue home around 9:30 a.m., on reports of one injured man and a second man who had barricaded them both inside, according to Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella.
After a brief standoff, the younger man surrendered.
Responding officers went inside and discovered the body of Ronald Vicari, the prosecutor said.
Musella did not immediately confirm the identity of the man taken into custody. He also did not disclose the manner of Vicari's death on Tuesday.
Vicari was a former member of both the Elmwood Park Planning Board and the Borough's Zoning Board of Adjustment.
