Cop Opens Fire on Fleeing Teens Who Knocked on Wrong Door

An off-duty New Jersey state trooper is under investigation for shooting at a car full of fleeing teenagers who said that they mistakenly knocked on his door thinking that it was a friend’s residence.

The encounter occurred early Sunday morning at a home owned by Kissinger Barreau, a 2009 graduate of the New Jersey State Police Academy, according to NJ Advance Media. The state Attorney General’s office said their initial probe of the incident found that the three teens knocked on the front and back doors of Barreau’s residence in Sparta, New Jersey believing they were at the home of a friend. The off-duty trooper, meanwhile, thought the teens were burglars, the Attorney General’s office said.

One of the teens involved, 18-year-old Jesse Barkhorn, identified himself, as well as 18-year-old John Baker and 19-year-old Matthew Mayer, to NJ Advance Media as the three teens at the scene. Sparta police scanner recordings indicated that Mayer identified himself when “the homeowner confronted him at the door.” The trio fled the trooper’s property once they realized they were at the wrong residence.

The trooper followed them into the street, according to the Attorney General’s office. He tried to stop the vehicle, then fired three rounds, one of which hit a tire.

“We realize it’s a gun and we panic. I’m like ‘dude, dude, dude, accelerate,’” Barkhorn said.

No one was hurt, but the car could not go more than about a mile and a half. Barreau pursued, according to the scanner audio, but eventually stopped and returned home.

Barreau later told police “they almost ran him over,” the recording revealed. He also told officials he had identified himself as a law enforcement officer. Barkhorn countered, saying the officer did not identify himself.

    Yeah, I live around the area where this took place and a lot of people are wondering why nothing has been done yet. Some people I know are waiting to see what happens, so they can do the same thing. As one person said, If no charges go against the guy that would mean that you can fire your gun at anyone that “knocks” on your door including the cops.
