Gunmen fire shots at Camden officers’ home with baby inside



This story originally appeared on NBC10.

Investigators are searching for two gunmen who opened fire on the home of two Camden County police officers while their newborn baby was inside.

Police said the gunmen shot at the officers’ home on the 2900 block of Clinton Street late Tuesday night. The home was struck at least six times. The couple as well as their baby who was born on Sept. 5, were inside the home at the time of the shooting. No one was hurt however.

“The attack on our officers was an affront to the department and will not be tolerated,” Camden County Police Chief Joseph Wysocki said.

The officers have been with the department for four years and two years. They both remain on leave.

Thursday morning, investigators located a 1998 dark-colored Honda Odyssey that they believe was involved in the incident. No arrests have been made however.

Police are seeking the public’s help to find the gunmen and law enforcement officials are offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

If you have any details on the shooting, please call the CCPD tip line at 856-757-7420.
