An off-duty Trenton police officer's altercation with a man Saturday night ended with the man dead of a gunshot wound to the chest, New Jersey authorities said.
Officials with the Mercer County Prosecutor's Office said the incident unfolded about 9:50 p.m. on Roosevelt Street near West Ingham Avenue. Alfred Toe, 34, his brother Constantine Toe, 30, and the off-duty officer were attending a repast celebration following a funeral earlier in the day, according to witnesses.
"He was with us drinking," said James Alpha, Toe's friend. "Nobody knew he was an officer."
Tourist John Gleason crept through the grass, four small children close behind, inching toward a bull elk with antlers like small trees at the edge of a meadow in Yellowstone National Park.
"They're going to give me a heart attack," said Gleason's mother-in-law, Barbara Henry, as the group came within about a dozen yards of the massive animal.

Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence laid out an immigration policy for running mate Donald Trump Sunday morning that would grant some undocumented immigrants the opportunity to legally stay in the United States — after returning to their native country, NBC News reported.
"There will be no path to legalization, no path to citizenship unless people leave the country," Pence said on CNN's "State of the Union."
Despite Pence insisting that Trump's immigration positions "have been absolutely consistent," the GOP presidential nominee suggested this week he would be open to "softening" his intentions to create a "deportation force" and remove the entire undocumented immigrant population from the United States.
