Police kill man wanted in shooting, sexual assault in South Jersey

7-22-2010 New Jersey:

A man wanted in a shooting and sexual assault in Collingswood early Wednesday was killed hours later after he pulled a gun on members of a fugitive task force, officials said.

Naquan Johnson, 21, of Williamstown, was tracked down to a unit of the Cherrywood Apartments in Gloucester Township after fleeing an apartment in Collingswood where he Tasered and sexually assaulted a woman and shot a man about 1 a.m., authorities said.

When members of the New York/New Jersey U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force tried to take him into custody about 6:30 p.m., he a “made a threatening gesture” with a handgun, prompting officers to open fire, said a statement issued by the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office.

Johnson died from his wounds.

Earlier, police said, he sexually assaulted an 18-year-old woman during a gathering at an apartment on the 1000 block of Collings Avenue in Collingswood.

“He apparently made romantic overtures toward the woman, and when she rebuked him, he Tasered her and sexually assaulted her at gunpoint,” the statement said.

He then shot a 21-year-old Philadelphia man in the head during a subsequent dispute, police said.

The shooting victim was reported in critical condition at Capital Health Regional Medical Center in Trenton Wednesday night.

The New Jersey State Police and the New Jersey Attorney General's Shooting Response Team are investigating the shooting that left Johnson dead. ..Source.. by Inquirer Staff Report
