Jury selection is set to start Tuesday in the murder trial of a man charged with gunning down a Lakewood police officer as he sat in his police cruiser last year. Ocean County prosecutors say Jahmell Crockam of Lakewood shot patrolman Christopher Matlosz after the officer drove up alongside him on a Lakewood street last January. Crockam then allegedly opened fire, shooting the Matlosz three times at close range.
