Lavon King (9291)



6/24/2014: A pair of Jersey City police officers from the Emergency Services Unit spotted King on Kearney Avenue at approximately 4:30 p.m. While one officer pursued him on foot, another followed in a police vehicle. King was tracked to an Ege Avenue backyard, where he entered an unlocked shed. As one of the officers entered the shed with his firearm drawn, King struggled with the officer. At that point, the officer fired one round, striking the 20-year-old in his chest. http://imgick.nj.com/home/njo-media/pgmain/img/jersey-journal/photo/2014/06/26/man-shot-on-ege-avenue-in-jersey-city-june-24-2014-589d06b6f9a402ce.jpg
