Default BLACK with rifle kills 20-year-old, shoots 3 cops on Irvington street


Innocent 20-year-old man killed during wild New Jersey shootout

An innocent 20-year-old man was fatally shot in the neck during a broad daylight shootout with New Jersey police — that left the gunman dead and three officers injured, state officials and police sources said.

The wild encounter started with 39-year-old Kaizen Crossen firing off rounds on the 300 block of Myrtle Avenue in Irvington, NJ, just after 11:30 a.m., according to state authorities.

When cops arrived they found a 20-year-old passerby shot and Crossen, armed with a rifle and wearing body armor, and they exchanged fire, according to officials and sources.

Within minutes, the Irvington man was fatally shot by police and died a few houses away, state officials said.

Three officers were also shot — one was hit in the leg and two others were grazed by gunfire, officials and sources said.

Witnesses told ABC, they heard at least 50 rounds fired off by the gunman and cops.

The Irvington police officer who was shot in the leg was taken to University Hospital in Newark, where he was expected to make a full recovery, sources said.

New Jersey’s Attorney General’s Office is investigating the shooting, per state guidelines on police shootings.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.

Man with rifle kills 20-year-old, shoots 3 cops on Irvington street
August 8, 2019

IRVINGTON — Police on Thursday killed a man with a rifle after he fatally shot another man on the street and started firing rounds at cops, officials said.

Kaizen Crossen, a 39-year-old township resident, shot the unarmed man on the 300 block of Myrtle Avenue, the state Attorney General's Office said.

Police responded after 11:30 a.m. and encountered Crossen armed with a rifle. The first cop on scene ended up in a shootout with Crossen, resulting in the cop getting shot in his legs. Officials on Thursday did not say who shot first.

The shooting continued when more officers arrived. Two cops were hit and Crossen was fatally wounded.

He and the other man, who authorities had not publicly identified late Thursday afternoon, were pronounced dead at University Hospital in Newark. The officers are expected to survive.

The Attorney General's Office, which is investigating the shooting as mandated by state law governing fatal shootings involving police, did not say Thursday whether they knew what motivated Crossen.

Court records show Crossen was convicted in 1998 of dealing drugs in a school zone, for which he was sentenced to three years in prison. His arrest record in Essex County includes a 2016 bust on eventually dismissed charges of making a threat to kill and being an annoyance. In 2008 he was charged with possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana.
