NJ State Trooper cleared in shooting after 911 hangup

- A NJ State Trooper has been cleared in a shooting that critically wounded a 76-year-old Cumberland County man last July.

Gerald Sykes was shot inside his Upper Deerfield home after a disconnected 9-1-1 call was mistakenly traced to his address.
 
It led to a gun battle with state police.
 
The Attorney General says the trooper was justified because he felt he was in immediate danger.
