The suspect wounded Saturday during an officer-involved shooting incident that occurred in Trenton has been charged with assault, resisting arrest and obstruction offenses, Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo J. Onofri reported.

According to Prosecutor Onofri, Jajuan Henderson, 29, of Burlington, is charged with aggravated assault, resisting arrest and obstruction.

Prosecutor Onofri said that at approximately 12:15 a.m., Saturday, February 12, members of the Trenton Police Street Crimes Unit were involved in a Police shooting resulting from an encounter with Henderson in a motor vehicle. 

According to Prosecutor Onofri, during this incident, Henderson was shot by one officer. Henderson was initially treated at Capital Health Regional Medical Center, Trenton, and has since been transferred to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Philadelphia, where he remains in stable condition. 

No officers appear to have been injured. 

Prosecutor Onofri said that all four officers have been placed on administrative leave, and the scene was processed on Saturday by the New Jersey State Police, both of which are standard protocols for incidents of this nature.

The Mercer County Homicide Task Force continues to investigate the shooting, which is also standard protocol for these incidents. 

The New Jersey Attorney General’s Office has been notified, as well.
