NEWARK, N.J. — A Hoboken man fleeing police died yesterday, authorities said, after he was shot in the head by a Belleville officer he had just hit with his car.

Edwin Munoz, 22, died yesterday afternoon following a car chase that began in Belleville and ended in Newark, said Paul Loriquet, a spokesman for the Essex County Prosecutor's Office. A passenger in the car, Japhet Lopez, 25, of Newark, was uninjured and later was charged with attempted burglary, eluding police and resisting arrest.
