FORT LEE, N.J. -- A Fort Lee man was shot by borough police outside his home Sunday after he pointed a gun at them, Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal said.

Jaquan A. Suber was in police custody Sunday night at Hackensack University Medical Center, charged with pointing an illegal handgun at police.

Suber pointed the firearm "under circumstances manifesting extreme indifference," Grewal said.

He was in critical but stable condition at HUMC, the prosecutor said.

The officers, who sustained facial injuries in the 10:30 a.m. confrontation, were taken to Englewood Hospital and Medical Center for evaluation, he said.

An investigation was continuing, Grewal said.
