News

PINE CREEK TOWNSHIP, CLINTON COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — State police are investigating a deadly home invasion in Clinton County.

Troopers tell Eyewitness News 30-year-old Cody Englert from Jersey Shore tried to break into a house on Fourth Street near Avis early Wednesday morning.

State police say he was shot and killed by someone who lives at the home.  That person is cooperating with the investigation.

Troopers went door-to-door questioning neighbors about the incident.

“The homes all around here have a bunch of little kids,” said Randy Gallagher.  “It’s quiet during the day, just a typical little quiet town!”

State police did not identify the person who shot the intruder, but tell Eyewitness News there is no threat to the public.  As of now, no charges have been filed in the case.
