Two NJ Officers Shot, Manhunt Underway

Two New Jersey police officers were struck by gunfire on Tuesday while serving a warrant.

One officer was shot in the leg, and the other had his neck grazed, with the bullet winding up in his shoulder.

Both officers are expected to recover from their wounds.

A manhunt is now underway for suspect Kendall Howard.

Door-to-Door

After allegedly shooting the officers, Howard retreated inside a nearby building.

This led to a door-to-door search by officers.

There was also a massive police presence in the area.

On the search, Newark Mayor Ras Baraka stated, "It's still ongoing.

"They are still clearing out the building, and prayerfully we can end this with a person in custody this evening."

In addition to Newark PD, New Jersey State Police, Essex County Sheriff's Office, FBI, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), and U.S. Marshals Service were all on-scene.

SWAT was also called in.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy stated, "I am aware of and closely monitoring an unfolding situation in Newark.

"I am in touch with local authorities and the State is providing resources as requested.

"We will continue to support local law enforcement and ensure that all residents are safe."

While the White House is always quick to respond when an officer appears to have done wrong, there has not been so much as a "get well" comment for the two downed officers in this shooting.
