NJ Officer Shot During Struggle with Suspect

November 02, 2017  | 

A Camden County, NJ, police officer was shot in the thigh at point-blank range after a suspect pulled out a gun during a struggle on Wednesday night.

The first-year officer approached three people who were acting suspiciously just after 10 p.m. when one ran away, Camden County police said.

Police Chief Scott Thompson says the officer caught the suspect, who pulled out a gun and opened fire. The officer disarmed the suspect, who was arrested, NJ.com reports.

In a tweet, the chief said backup officers used a tourniquet on the wounded officer's leg and rushed the officer to the hospital. The officer is reportedly in stable condition.
