Suspects sought after shots fired at NJ police officers’ home

Northeast

CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — Authorities on Friday were offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrests of two gunmen who opened fire on a home where two New Jersey police officers and their newborn live.

The Camden County officers and their 10-day-old infant were inside their home when six bullets struck it on Tuesday night, authorities said. Some of the bullets penetrated the home, but the family was on the second floor and no one was hurt.

“I do know that this was a targeted attack against this residence and the officers inside,” said Police Chief Joseph Wysocki. He said the attack will not be tolerated.

The FBI and other agencies have joined the investigation.

Authorities on Thursday located a minivan that they believe was involved in the shooting.

The officers remain on leave.
