TRENTON, N.J. – A man has surrendered after a 2-day standoff in Trenton. FOX 29's Jeff Cole caught the moment live on the air Thursday shortly after 5 p.m.
Officers have been pleaded with 35-year-old Tyleeb Reese to go downstairs and leave the Trenton home where he was holed up since Wednesday morning. A robot even delivered a phone to him.
There has also been shooting as recently as just before midnight.
Keeley reports Reese has been shot in his leg and says he’s bleeding badly. Authorities say they have a medic ready to treat him outside, but will not go inside.
Police say Reese started shooting when the U.S. Marshals Service Joint Regional Fugitive Task Force tried to serve a warrant.
A bystander who lived a block away on Lamberton Street, 56-year-old Robert Powell Jr., was shot and killed outside the home on Wednesday morning.
Three Mercer County sheriff's officers suffered minor injuries and were treated at a hospital, and then released.
