Wounded N.J. Officer Wakes From Induced Coma

February 02, 2010  | 

The police officer who was shot Saturday evening after stopping a suspicious vehicle just blocks from headquarters has emerged from a medically induced coma and is "in and out" of consciousness, acting Essex County Prosecutor Robert Laurino said tonight.

"He's due to have additional surgery. We're waiting until he becomes better and stronger" before getting more information from Officer Gerald Veneziano, Laurino said.
