Police blast New Jersey man in own home responding to wrong address
State police in New Jersey, responding to the wrong address for a 911 call, critically wounded a 76-year-old man as he stood in his own living room with a shotgun, the New Jersey Attorney General’s office said.
The state troopers thought he was a threat, and he apparently thought they were intruders.
The confusion started around 11:30 p.m. Friday with a 911 call from a cellphone near the home on Centerton Road in Cumberland County, authorities said.
The caller hung up before providing a precise location, and police later determined the call had not in fact come from the home where Gerald Sykes lives with his 80-year-old wife.
