Man charged with attempted murder of federal agent after incident in Hamilton, NJ

An investigation is underway following a police-involved shooting in Mercer County, New Jersey that left one man hospitalized. 

The shooting occurred at approximately 9 p.m. Monday in the parking lot of the Krauszer’s Food Store on Greenwood Avenue in Hamilton.

Authorities say it happened during a federal investigation involving the ATF and the FBI.

The Mercer County Prosecutor's Office says the preliminary investigation suggests the suspect, a Trenton man in his 20s, got into a vehicle with an undercover officer. 

The suspect, Jabree Johnson, engaged in an altercation with two federal officers and brandished a weapon at the officers. At some point, an officer’s weapon was discharged.

Johnson fled the scene on foot, but was later located at Capital Health Regional Medical Center where he is currently in critical but stable condition suffering from a gunshot wound.

Johnson is facing numerous charges including attempted murder, robbery, aggravated assault, resisting arrest and other weapons offenses.
