Police are searching for two suspects who shot at a New Jersey home that belonged to two police officers and their newborn.
Camden’s Police Chief Joseph Wysocki said at a news conference, “I don’t know what the motive is at this time, but I do know that this is a targeted attack against this residence that the officers reside,” he said, adding, “It’s very common knowledge that these officers live there.”
At 11:46 p.m. on Clinton Street, it is expected that six out of the seven rounds hit the home. Two of the rounds went through the front door and into the home, but no one was injured.
Both officers are currently on leave. One officer has been with the department for two years, and the other officer has been there for four.
Wysocki said, “This attack on our officers was an affront to the department and will not be tolerated.”
A 1998 Honda Accord was found unoccupied, and the vehicle is believed to have been used in the shooting Thursday morning. Police are offering a $20,000 reward for any information regarding the arrest of the two individuals involved.
At this time, the county, state, and federal law enforcement officials are involved in the investigation.
At a press conference, Camden County Freeholder Director Louis Capelli, Jr. said, “I want to send a very clear message to the scumbag thugs behind this senseless act.” He continued on to say, “We are coming to get you, and you will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
