Anthony Trice Jr., 24, was shot after police say they caught him breaking into a Checkers in Clinton. He also was a suspect in burglaries at a Wendy’s and a Popeyes nearby.

Officers responded to a burglary alarm at Checkers in the 8800 block of Woodyard Road at 3:40 a.m.. They found Trice there at a safe.

The officers set up a perimeter around the restaurant and called to Trice to surrender. One officer said he saw that he was armed and warned the other officers.

Trice went out of a side door with the weapon in his hand and pointed it at at least two officers, police say. The officers ordered him to drop, and one of the officers fired a shot, hitting him once in the leg.

A handgun and screwdriver were recovered near where he fell, Stawinski said. A spent shell casing from the suspect's weapon also was found at the scene.

The officers rendered aid at the scene. Then, Trice died at a hospital. He lived on Piscataway Road in Clinton.

No officers were injured.

A camera on a police cruiser captured the incident, and the department plans to release the footage what they can, Stawinski said.
