Police from Secaucus and other agencies responded to a Secaucus residential development Sunday night for what one official said was a domestic incident.

A person identified only as a male civilian was shot and killed during the incident, Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said in a statement late Sunday. Grewal's office described the incident as an officer-involved shooting, but did not say which law enforcement agency's officer or officers were involved.

Several Secaucus police as well as Jersey City police responded to the 300 block of Sea Isle Key in Harmon Cove around 6 p.m. The Hudson County sheriff was also on scene along with units from East Rutherford.

Residents were briefly told to shelter in place, according to a published report, but that was lifted not long afterwards.

Mayor Michael Gonnelli told NorthJersey.com that there had been a domestic incident leading to an exchange of gunfire between police and the suspect.

The attorney general is conducting an investigation into the shooting. State law requires an investigation by the attorney general when a death is caused by law enforcement personnel acting in an official capacity.
