SummaryA State Police officer shot and killed a gunman in Moriarty on Tuesday during a standoff with law enforcement, according to the state police chief. The shooter was in the area of McNabb and Lexco roads firing a rifle at police officers and two helicopters. He had barricaded himself inside his home and refused to come out, according to State Police Chief Pete Kassetas. The gunman reportedly said he was going to shoot at anyone who flew over or came near his property. "I think a couple hours later one of our tactical team members fired a round, striking the individual and killing him," Kassetas said.
