Brielle standoff shuts down Route 71, ends after six hours with suspect in custody


- Advertisment -

BRIELLE – A portion of Route 71 was closed and homes were evacuated after a 25-year-old man barricaded himself in his residence at the Whalers Quay mobile home park on Union Avenue, police said.

Shaquil A. McKinney was charged with fourth-degree criminal mischief after he was later taken into custody following the incident on Thursday night, the Brielle Police Department said in a statement.

The Monmouth County Emergency Response Team (the county SWAT) and its rapid deployment force went to the scene with the county Prosecutor’s Office. The standoff with McKinney lasted for nearly six hours after it began at 7:19 p.m., the statement said.

“The Brielle Police Department would like to thank all local and county emergency, EMS, fire and police personnel who responded to the scene to assist us,” said Police Chief Gary Olsen. “We were able to bring this potentially dangerous situation to a peaceful resolution and take the suspect into custody without injury to himself or our officers and first responders. I am so proud of the professional and courageous actions of our officers and our partners.”

In their statement, police said McKinney fled into his home after he was suspected of breaking the windows in a neighbor’s home and of the neighbor’s motor vehicle.

The woman, who was not identified, made a “frantic call” to police about the attack on her property, according to the statement.

Officers on scene attempted to communicate with McKinney, but he did not respond to their orders, police said.

After efforts to negotiate with McKinney dragged on for hours, the officers on scene made “a dynamic entry” into his home without further incident, police said.

He was taken to Brielle police headquarters where he was processed before he was transferred to an area hospital for evaluation and treatment, the statement said.

During the ordeal, nearby residents were evacuated to local shelters and Route 71 southbound was closed from Union Lane to Higgins Avenue, police said.
