The Attorney General’s Office is investigating a "fatal officer-involved shooting" which occurred Sunday afternoon in Wayne. Responding police units, including Fairfield and Wayne Police, were present at the scene. The AGO reports that the deceased individual is Bradley G. Pullman, 48, of Beacon, NY. A .380-caliber pistol was recovered from Pullman’s vehicle and he was pronounced dead at the scene. ________________________
The incident began with a police pursuit originating in Mountain Lakes on Route 46 East and ended with reports of a cross-fire shooting about nine minutes later on the Route 23 North ramp to Route 80 East.
At about 4:38pm, Mountain Lakes Police alerted surrounding police that they were pursuing a White Lexus sedan with New York license plate traveling at about 100mph on Route 46 East. The car had performed an illegal u-turn and would not stop for police.
4:38pm: The car was seen traveling past Smith Road, Parsippany
4:40pm: Fairfield Police closed off the Clinton Road exit and stationed near Targe
4:41pm: Fairfield Police spotted the suspect vehicle traveling 46 East at a high rate of speed and alerted other West Essex police of the pursuit
4:42pm The suspect vehicle was in the area of the Executive Inn, reportedly traveling now about 80mph in the left lane past Hollywood Avenue. The exits at Two Bridges were shut down.
4:43pm The suspect vehicle continued past Corrados and through the overpass on Route 46 East; at Target the car was reportedly traveling at about 90mph
4:44pm The car apparently began to slow down to 30mph as it headed on Route 23 North near the Kings Inn
4:46pm The suspect vehicle was on the ramp headed to Route 80 and reportedly did not travel any further
4:48pm Police reported a cross-fire incident involving multiple police at that area which involved the suspect vehicle driver, who was the single occupant
Immediately, all travel both ways in the area of the ramp was closed down. The road was eventually reopened after the investigation concluded on Sunday night at 11:20pm. _____________________________________________
