The shots fired at the home of two New Jersey police officers with their 10-day-old baby


“I don’t know what the motive is at the moment, but I know that this is a targeted attack against the residence that officers inhabit,” Camden Police Chief Joseph Vyoski said at a news conference. “It is very common knowledge that these officers live there.”

The incident occurred at 11:46 pm on Clinton Street and at least six of the seven rounds fired at the home, Wysocki said. Two rounds entered the house through the front door, but no one was injured.

One of the officers is with the department for four years, the other for two years. Both officers are on leave and have not been identified.

“This attack on our officers was a confrontation of the department and will not be tolerated,” Vyoski said.

Police are offering a reward of $ 20,000 for any information regarding the arrest of those involved. The use of a 1998 exiled Honda Odyssey is believed to have started shooting on Thursday morning and police are coping through the vehicle for further evidence.

Police said county, state and federal law enforcement officers are involved in the investigation.

“I want to send a very clear message to the rogue thugs behind this ridiculous act,” said Luis Capelli, Jr.’s freeholder director at the press conference. “We are coming to get you and you will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
