CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey police officer has been accused of shooting a gun at his own police vehicle.

The Camden County Prosecutor's Office says 23-year-old Da'Shaun Carr used his personal gun to shoot a hole in his windshield on Oct. 3 and then communicated by police radio that he had been fired upon.

Police searched the area around New Brooklyn Park in Winslow, where he said the shooting happened.

Carr is a part-time special officer with the Winslow Police Department. He was charged Monday with false public alarms and has been suspended without pay.

Reached by phone Friday, Carr told The Associated Press, "I don't have charges against me."

His lawyer was out of the office and did not immediately return a call.
