CLIFTON, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a homeless man stabbed one man to death and seriously injured another during an altercation at a northern New Jersey shopping center.

Clifton police tell The Record (https://bit.ly/1n721rc) that charges are pending against 61-year-old Henry Werner. The incident is being investigated as a homicide.

The altercation occurred around 7:25 a.m. Monday.

Authorities say the two victims, both Clifton residents, were walking in the parking lot when they were approached by Werner, who had a knife. Werner allegedly stabbed a 67-year-old man, then attacked an 81-year-old man who came to the victim’s aid.

Both victims were taken to a hospital, where the 67-year-old died a short time later. The 81-year-old was in serious condition.

An off-duty Nutley police officer who was in the area disarmed and restrained Werner.
