VIDEO: Off-Duty NJ Officer Kills 2 Men Attempting to Rob Him, Police Say

Authorities say an off-duty Jersey City, NJ, police officer fatally shot two men during a robbery attempt in Newark Sunday night.

The officer said he was approached by two armed men who intended to rob him, and he shot them.

The officer was taken to University Medical Center to be treated for trauma, ABC7 reports.

The Jersey City Police Department released a statement: "We are thankful that our detective, who was a victim of an attempted armed robbery, is OK and want to thank the Newark Police Department and the Essex County Prosecutor for their assistance in this ongoing investigation."

Praying that the detective would fully recover from this incident and be able to continue to heal emotionally. God bless him!
