The Wednesday manhunt for Jose Rodriguez (pictured), the shackled prisoner who managed to escape from the NYPD by stealing a police car, had NJ communities on the alert. Some schools were locked down and one resident got ready by making sure his gun was loaded...and then he accidentally shot himself. Cliffview Pilot reports, "Cliffside Park Police Chief Donald Keane [said] that the 44-year-old West End Avenue resident 'heard about the fugitive' and immediately began loading his legally Sig Sauer P-228 9mm -- a model long preferred by some federal agents -- when it discharged. The unidentified resident sustained a 'flesh wound' to his right hand." Rodriguez was later captured in Connecticut.
