Cumberland County officials have identified a man who was shot and killed by police during a foot chase.

He has been identified as 23-year-old Darryl Fuqua.

Prosecutors say the shooting on South Avenue in Bridgeton occurred around 4 p.m. Friday.

They say a gun was found near Fuqua's body, but have not said why officers were pursuing him.

No officers were injured in the incident, which remained under investigation Saturday. The name of the officer that fired the fatal shot was not disclosed.

Authorities have not said whether Fuqua shot at police or anyone else.

The shooting is under review by the county prosecutor's office, which is standard procedure in shootings involving police officers.
