Officer charged with manslaughter in shooting of man who called 911

MANTUA, N.J. (AP) — A police officer who fatally shot a homeowner that had called 911 to report intruders outside his southern New Jersey home has been indicted on a manslaughter charge. Mantua Township Police Officer Salvatore Oldrati faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted. The charge stems from the September 2021 death of Charles Sharp III, who called 911 to report he had spotted two burglars in his backyard. Oldrati and another Mantua officer soon responded to the home in different vehicles. Authorities say Oldrati shot Sharp several times just seconds after he stepped out of his police vehicle. Oldrati’s attorney said he was surprised and disappointed by the indictment.
