Man indicted on murder, other charges in deadly standoff

Posted: Updated:

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A man who allegedly shot three police officers and killed an innocent bystander before barricading himself inside his Trenton home for nearly two days has been indicted on murder charges and other counts.

The 18-count indictment against 35-year-old Tyleeb Reese was recently handed up by a Mercer County grand jury. The charges stem from a standoff that started May 10, when agents with the U.S. Marshals Service went to Reese's home to arrest him on a warrant.

Authorities say Reese started shooting at the officers and wounded three of them. Robert Powell Jr., a 56-year-old Trenton resident who happened to be walking in the area, was shot and killed.

Reese then barricaded himself inside his home for 35 hours before he surrendered.

It's not known if he's retained an attorney.
