Following an intense weeklong manhunt, authorities arrested a man on this morning and charged him with the shooting death of an off-duty police officer from Paterson, N.J.

About 6:30 a.m. a multi-agency task force stormed an apartment building in Irvington, N.J., based on information from a tipster, said Lt. Anthony Traina of the Paterson Police Department.

The police said they had Teddy Charlemagne, 23, in custody and were interrogating him.
