A Hamilton Township officer who was shot while responding to a domestic violence incident Friday night is in stable condition after undergoing surgery.
The New Jersey State Policemen's Benevolent Association says the officer is resting comfortably and has been up and talking following the operation.
Authorities say the man who opened fire at Hamilton Township police and injured the officer was pronounced dead at the scene of the incident.
Attorney General Matthew Platikin released a statement about the shooting. It read in part, "our thoughts are with the officer and his partner who responded last night, and with the family of the decedent who suffered a tragic loss. We will also keep the entire Hamilton Township Police Department and the loved ones of all those affected in our prayers... In New Jersey, we are working together to disrupt cycles of violence, end gun violence, protect our law enforcement officers, and support victims and survivors of violence as they work to rebuild their lives."
The Attorney General's Office says they will investigate the incident and will not release any additional information at this time.
