Police officer reportedly shot in Camden

A Camden County police officer is recovering from a gunshot wound after being shot at point blank range Wednesday night.

Attempts by NJ Advance Media to reach a police spokesman Wednesday night were not successful.

The officer, who was not identified, was shot near 9th and Chelton streets around 10:30 p.m. "If not for our officer intercepting him and taking him off the street and the gun there probably would have been a lot worse events taking place tonight". As the officer approached, one of the men pulled out a gun, leading to a physical struggle with the officer as he tried to wrestle the gun away. Fellow officers responded and arrested the shooter.

The alleged assailant was taken into custody, and was being charged with attempted murder of a police officer and other crimes, the chief told the Courier-Post. The officer has been taken to Cooper University Hospital and is being treated for non-life-threatening injuries. Thomson said the bullet went through the officer's upper right thigh.

A police investigation is continuing.
