(NEW YORK) -- An armed Ridge man wanted for numerous speeding violations died at his home yesterday in a shootout with Suffolk police. When officers showed up at the home of Joseph Fields on Monday evening at 8 p.m. with nine warrants for his arrest, the 46-year-old greeted them at the front door with a 12-gauge shotgun.
