The suspect was an adult male resident of Hackensack, New Jersey. He was identified as the possible culprit in the recent shooting death of Jacqueline Dicks, an MTA conductor.
According to law enforcement, the suspect may have shot and killed the victim late at night.
Detectives identified the suspect and then sent a SWAT team to his home on First Street in Hackensack, New Jersey. When police officers and SWAT team members arrived at the residence, the suspect reportedly refused to come outside and even went so far as to barricade himself inside the house.
