Three city police officers went to 10 Temple Avenue around 1:30 p.m. to check on Elvin Diaz at the request of county probation officials, Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said in a Twitter message. Hackensack Police Director Michael Mordaga said Diaz was armed with "a very large knife" when the shooting occurred. In a tweet later Thursday, Molinelli said a meat cleaver had been found at the scene but an investigation remained under way.
