PLUMSTED TOWNSHIP BARRICADED SUSPECT EVENT ENDS

On August 25 at approximately 10 am, Officials at New Egypt High School received information that there was a domestic dispute taking place at 120 Evergreen Road in Plumsted. School officials immediately called 911 and members of the Plumsted Township Police Department were dispatched.

Upon their arrival, officers found a deceased female victim who had apparently succumbed to stab wounds in the property’s driveway. They proceeded to the home’s front entrance and found a note on the front door telling police that there are guns in the house and that the occupant would kill them. This was later confirmed by on scene police through interviews with the suspect’s son that there were at least six weapons owned by the father in the home.

The residence was immediately secured. Resources from Ocean County Northern Regional SWAT Team, Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office, Plumsted Township Police Department, Ocean County Sheriff’s Department, and the New Jersey State Police were called and a perimeter was established to contain the barricaded occupant. At approximately 2:30 pm a camera equipped robot made entry to the residence and found the male occupant in the garage area of the home unresponsive. He was airlifted to Jersey Shore Medical Center. There is no suspect condition status to report at this time.

The suspect is identified as Arthur Haskoor, 50. His deceased wife is identified as Susan Haskoor, 48. The couple had been married for 20 years with two male children, ages 17 and 18.

The investigation is continuing and charges are pending. Attached Picture is the scene of the event
