After a 12-hour police standoff that involved multiple different law enforcement agencies, a West New York man surrendered to authorities minutes ago.
By John Heinis/Hudson County View
The man allegedly fired shots at West New York police officers from a home near the intersection of 57th Street and John F. Kennedy Boulevard around 2:30 a.m. this morning after fleeing from a traffic stop.
As a result, the FBI, West New York, North Bergen, Union City, Guttenberg and Weehawken Police Departments, as well as the Hudson and Bergen County Sheriffâ€™s Officeâ€™s – including their SWAT units – responded to the incident.
The man, whose personal information has not been released yet, is said to have a military background, according to West New York Mayor Felix Roque, who added that no one was injured.
Roque deferred all questions to the prosecutor’s office, who have not released any information other than that the suspect finally turned himself in without incident.
Subject surrendered safely. Thank you to all law enforcement agencies involved- Job well done!!
