Camden County police officer put on leave after shooting man
(AP) - A Camden County police officer has been placed on administrative leave as authorities investigate a shooting involving the officer during a domestic violence call.
The unidentified officer wounded 38-year-old Jose Antonio Fernandez Ventura after responding to a call Wednesday morning at a home in Camden.
Prosecutors say the officer shot Ventura, who was armed, as he approached a female inside the residence. WTXF-TV reports the woman was injured and taken to Cooper University Hospital along with Ventura.
Ventura and the woman both remain hospitalized in critical but stable condition. Their relation remains unclear.
Additional details regarding the encounter weren't immediately released.
A statement released by the county prosecutor's office didn't address any charges pending against Ventura.
