Trenton – A man injured by Trenton police on Saturday has been charged with aggravated assault and other crimes, prosecutors said.
Jajuan Henderson, 29, of Burlington, was injured during a meeting with the Trenton Police Department for street crime around 12:15 a.m. Saturday on Center Street.
He was shot dead by an officer while he was sitting in the car, the Mercer County Attorney’s Office said.
Henderson is charged with four counts of aggravated assault, resistance and obstruction. Prosecutors have not disclosed what led to the violent confrontation after four officers converged on Henderson.
The officer who wounded Henderson has not been identified.
As a result of the shooting, none of the officers were injured, and all were placed on administrative leave while prosecutors investigate the use of force.
Henderson was treated at a local hospital before being transferred to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, where he remains in stable condition.
