Three N.J. Officers Shot; Gunman Killed in Police Station

 

Three Gloucester Township officers were injured this morning and a suspect killed in a shooting inside the department's headquarters, authorities said Friday.

Deputy Chief David Harkins said the shooting occurred about 5:30 a.m. when a person under arrest in a domestic violence case was being processed at the station.

"He got into a violent confrontation with the officers" and obtained a firearm, Harkins said.

A male officer was shot in the abdomen and is undergoing surgery. Another male officer and a female officer suffered minor gunshot wounds.

The officers returned fire and the suspect was killed at the police station.

Harkins did not release the suspect's name or say how he got a gun.
