Man shot to death by state trooper at New Jersey rest stop

A state trooper fatally shot a man at a New Jersey Turnpike rest stop Thursday, authorities said.

The trooper fired on the man, who was inside a pickup truck, around 2:45 p.m. at the Molly Pitcher Service Area in Cranbury Township, according to officials.

The gray truck crashed into a concrete barrier, CBS 2 reported.

State police referred all questions to the state Attorney General’s office, which is investigating the central New Jersey shooting.

The state trooper shot the man dead inside a truck at the Molly Pitcher Service Area in Cranbury Township, officials said.

The man’s name has not been released, and the AG said only that that troopers were “conducting an investigation” at the rest area.

No troopers were injured in the shooting, officials said.

Police were seeking a Honda in connection with the Cranbury incident, CBS reported. Nearly two hours later, cops pulled over a black Honda sedan about five miles from the Delaware Memorial Bridge, and took three suspects into custody at gunpoint, according to the station’s website.
