Three cops reportedly shot inside New Jersey police station
Three New Jersey police officers were reportedly wounded during a shooting inside the Gloucester Township Police station.
MyFoxPhilly.com reports that the suspected shooter has been shot and killed.
One male officer was shot twice, including once in the abdomen below his bulletproof vest, and underwent surgery Friday morning. The unidentified officer is reportedly in stable condition at Copper University Hospital.
Injuries to the other two officers, a male and a female, were "very minor,” sources said.
The early Friday morning shooting apparently occurred inside the police station, possibly near a stairwell in the rear of the building. Police said a suspect was under arrest in connection with a domestic violence-related incident when a struggle with officers ensued at around 5:30 a.m. The suspect "obtained a firearm" during the struggle, police sources said. Officers then returned fire, killing the unidentified suspect.
Authorities said the situation has been contained and there's no danger to the public.
A neighbor told the station she heard sirens just before 6 a.m. and saw authorities place a police officer into the back of an ambulance, which then proceeded to a nearby trauma center with a police escort.
