Police officers shot at station

TRENTON — Three police officers in New Jersey were shot today, and one is in surgery for his wounds, a hospital official said.

The three officers, two men and a woman, were brought to Cooper University Hospital shortly after 6 a.m., hospital spokeswoman Lori Shaffer said.

Two of the officers suffered minor wounds, but one of the three, a male, required surgery, Shaffer said. She had no more information on the extent of the officer’s wounds.

The shooting took place at the Gloucester Township Police station, about 16 miles outside of Philadelphia, according to Philadelphia TV station NBC10.

Mum about incident

Gloucester Township Police would provide no details about the incident.

“You’re going to have to wait for a press release,” a person answering the telephone at the police department said.

The incident is the latest multiple shooting in the United States, and comes two weeks after a gunman killed 26 people, including 20 children, at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

One week ago in western Pennsylvania, a man with a pistol fatally shot three people and then opened fire on police. Three officers were injured in that incident, one in a collision from a car chase with the gunman, another from bullet fragments to the face and a third who was struck with gunfire to the chest but survived because he was wearing a bulletproof vest.
