Police Nab Suspected NJ Cop Killer

Photo Courtesy - WABC-TV New York(LAKEWOOD, N.J.) – The search for the man suspected of pumping three bullets into a Lakewood, New Jersey, police officer last week in what one official called an “execution-style killing,” ended Sunday when police arrested 19-year-old Jahmell Crockham without incident.

Patrolman Christopher Matlosz, 27, rolled up alongside the suspect Friday and the two exchanged words that investigators do not believe were hostile or confrontational. Moments later, investigators allege Crockam pulled out a handgun and shot the officer three times. They say the suspect fled, launching a massive police manhunt.

Crockam was already wanted on a previous charge of weapons possession.

Matlosz was just reassigned from the midnight shift to the evening shift three weeks ago. He was engaged to be married.
