Shooting inside NJ police station

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

A man being processed on a domestic violence charge grabbed a gun and shot and injured three officers at a police station in southern New Jersey before he was killed.

It happened at the Gloucester Township police station in Camden County.

One male officer was shot twice, including once in the abdomen below his bullet-proof vest.

The suspected shooter was shot and killed.  The injuries to the police officers do not appear to be life-threatening.

One officer was reportedly in surgery at Cooper Hospital in Camden.  The other two officers appear to have suffered graze wounds.

The police department is located inside of the township's municipal building on Chews Landing Road.  Police tape was hanging around the parking lot outside of the building.

A neighbor told Fox 29 that she heard a lot of sirens just before 6 a.m. When she looked out her window, she saw police quickly placing an officer into the back of an ambulance, which then proceeded to a nearby trauma center with a police escort.

Authorities say the situation has been contained, and there is no danger to the public.
