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.
