A man who surrendered to police after holding them at bay for 35 hours in New Jersey's capital city has been charged with killing a bystander.
Authorities say 35-year-old Tyleeb Reese was charged Friday in the shooting of 56-year-old Robert Powell Jr. along Centre Street in Trenton.
Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri says Powell was caught in the crossfire after Reese began shooting at law enforcement with a shotgun Wednesday morning. Onofri says Powell was killed by a shot to the back and was also hit in the ankle and hip.
