Authorities Reveal Identity Of Man Fatally Shot By Manchester Police Officers

The Attorney General’s Office today identified the decedent and the officers involved in the fatal officer-involved shooting that occurred on December 5, 2023 in Manchester, New Jersey. The civilian who died during the encounter has been identified as Shannon Rose, 39, of Manchester.

According to the preliminary information, on December 5 at approximately 8:28 p.m., members of the Manchester Township Police Department responded to a 9-1-1 call reporting an individual in distress. Officers located the subject on Elizabeth Avenue in Manchester Township, and at approximately 9:10 p.m., Officer Nicholas Greenwood and Officer Michael Anderson, both of the Manchester Police Department, discharged their firearms, striking Mr. Rose. Authorities recovered a firearm near Mr. Rose.

A 2019 law, P.L. 2019, c. 1, requires the Attorney General’s Office to conduct investigations of a person’s death that occurs during an encounter with a law enforcement officer acting in the officer’s official capacity or while the decedent is in custody. It requires that all such investigations be presented to a grand jury to determine if the evidence supports the return of an indictment against the officer or officers involved.
