Authorities have identified a man who was
fatally shot by police after a crash and chase involving a stolen police car.
The state attorney general’s office says the crash occurred Monday around 3 p.m. in Buena
Vista, and police there soon responded along with officers from nearby Franklin
After a Franklin officer got out of his
cruiser, authorities say Roy K. Jackel Jr., 41, of Cape May Court House, who
was involved in the crash, got in the police vehicle and drove away.
Officers pursued the cruiser and the chase soon
ended in another area of Buena Vista, where an “encounter” between Jackel and
police ended in the shooting.
