Police ID suspect in Winslow police-involved shooting

Posted: August 03, 2014

Winslow police fatally shot a township man Friday morning after responding to a call at a home on New Freedom Road, authorities said.

Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo and Winslow Police Chief Robert Stimelski identified the man as Daniel St. Pierre, 42.

St. Pierre was taken by helicopter to Cooper University Hospital, authorities said, and was pronounced dead about 9:30 a.m.

The shooting took place as three Winslow officers responded to the 400 block of New Freedom Road about 9 a.m. Authorities said that in addition to St. Pierre, another person was in the home at the time of the shooting.

The Prosecutor's Office did not release details about who made the call or if St. Pierre had a weapon.

Friday's incident was the first shooting death in Winslow involving police in at least seven years, according to the Camden County Prosecutor's Office website. The three officers were not injured in the shooting.

When a municipal police officer's use of a firearm while on duty results in death, the Prosecutor's Office is required by the state to oversee an investigation into the incident.
