Authorities are investigating a police-involved shooting in Irvington.
No injuries were reported in the Friday afternoon incident, according to the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office.
Irvington officers responded to Lincoln Place shortly before 4 p.m. for a report of a suspect with a gun.
As officers tried to apprehend the man, identified as Jahad Goff, 18, of Irvington, an officer “discharged his service weapon,” officials said. No one was struck.
Officers recovered a handgun from Goff and he was charged with weapons offenses and resisting arrest. He’s being held pending an appearance in Essex County Central Judicial Processing Court.
Authorities did not release additional details about the incident.
State guidelines require that county prosecutors investigate whenever a law enforcement officer discharges a weapon, the prosecutor’s office noted.
Anyone with information about the incident may contact the prosecutor’s professional standards bureau at 862-520-3700.
