Two plainclothes detectives were shot Tuesday night while sitting in their vehicle at a red light in what authorities in Camden, N.J., were calling an ambush attack.
At least one suspect fired as many as 25 rounds at the police officers, Camden County Police Chief J. Scott Thomson said.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The information we have thus far is that they were essentially ambushed,” Thomson told reporters at a late night news conference. “A male walked up and began opening fire. We have anywhere between 10 and 25 rounds that were fired at the officers.”
No information was available on a possible motive for the attack, Fox 29 in Philadelphia reported.
One of the detectives was able to return fire, Thomson said, but it was not immediately clear if anyone else was shot. Thomson said his department was in communication with hospitals in the region.
The detectives – one male and one female — were taken to an area hospital and were expected to survive.
Police said the detectives were shot in the hands and arms, and a manhunt is now underway for the suspect.
The shooting occurred on National Night Out, an event designed to bring local police and the communities they serve together.
