FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP - The Somerset County Prosecutor's Office has identified the man that was killed in last night?s police-involved shooting in Franklin Township.
Acting Somerset County Prosecutor A. Peter DeMarco, Jr. said Arthur McDougald, 60, was shot and killed in front of his Franklin Boulevard home after he pulled a gun on officers attempting to arrest him on a domestic violence charge.
