DEPTFORD — A fatal police shooting Sunday has prompted a mandatory state investigation into a deadly confrontation at a city home.

Daniel Munoz, who was at the KISS club Sunday and again Monday attending addiction recovery meetings, said he had “never seen so many police cars,” describing the busy scene Sunday afternoon and evening with several law enforcement agencies, including the Deptford Township Police and New Jersey State Police.

“They closed the roads,” Munoz said, pointing to the intersection of Delsea Drive and Fox Run Road. “I saw them using searchlights in the woods and then I heard gunfire.”

According to the General Prosecutor’s Office, this is what happened:

  • Police responded to a home on Fox Run Road after a 911 call.
  • At 1:22 p.m., the officer fired his service weapon
  • As a result of the shooting, the victim, identified only as a man, was fatally wounded.
  • Emergency medics provided assistance, but at 1:55 p.m. the man died at the scene.
