Elderly man, 76, is in critical condition after being shot by state troopers in his own living room – before they realized they were at the WRONG address:

A 76-year-old New Jersey man is in critical condition after state police responded to a 911 call to the wrong house  — and shot him as he stood in his own living room, authorities said.

Emergency dispatchers received a 911 call about 11:30pm Friday from a location in Cumberland County, but the caller hung up without giving a location.

The call appeared to have come from a house on Centerton Road and two uniformed state troopers responded. At the time, they didn’t realize the call hadn’t come from that address.
