VIDEO: Man Faces Attempted Murder Charges After NJ Officer Shot in Leg

A 19-year-old faces attempted murder charges in the close-range shooting of a rookie Camden County, NJ, police officer Wednesday night, reports WCAU.

Delronn Mahan was charged Thursday with attempted murder, aggravated assault, and related offenses, Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo said.

Mahan is accused of shooting 21-year-old officer Patrick O'Hanlon shortly after 10 p.m. Wednesday in Camden. The first-year officer approached three men he believed were suspicious, investigators said. The area is known for gang and drug activity, Camden County Police Chief Scott Thomson said.

As O'Hanlon walked toward them, one of the men began to flee. After O'Hanlon caught up to him, the man allegedly pulled out a gun and the two men began to struggle over the weapon. Mahan then opened fire at close range, shooting O'Hanlon in the leg, police said.

"It appears that the suspect tried to shoot the officer a second time in the face, but the gun did not go off," Thomson said, saying the gun jammed, likely saving Officer O'Hanlon's life.

O'Hanlon, who is also an Army reservist, was taken to Cooper University Hospital where he was listed in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries. Thomson said the bullet went through O'Hanlon's upper right thigh. He praised the officers who rushed O'Hanlon to the hospital.

Thank God our brother didn't die. Remember "Black lives matter", other those that try to kill us, then better them then us. Another example of young B/M hunting tp kill police, oh sorry the left thinks its the other way around, they don't look at the stats or facts.
