Law enforcement agents tracked the suspect to the Lakeview Apartments in Leonia, where a confrontation with members of the FBI's Philadelphia and Newark field offices ensued, NBC New York reports.
Local resident Kathleen Gentile told Daily Voice she heard voices outside just before 3:45 a.m. saying "FBI, please come out, you're standing in the window."
Then, she heard gunshots.
"Literally, 'Bang, bang bang' is what I heard," she said. "All I know is that I'm unnerved."
The 17-year-old victim was reportedly found safe.
