New Jersey Police Officer Shot While Responding to Domestic Violence Call

A New Jersey police officer was shot and injured while responding to a domestic violence call in Hamilton Township, Mercer County. The incident occurred on Friday night around 10 p.m. in the 1800 block of Orchard Avenue, according to the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office.

Hamilton Police reported that as officers were responding to the call, a suspect opened fire upon them, striking one of the officers. The injured cop was swiftly transported to Capital Health-Fuld Hospital and is expected to survive, as confirmed in a social media post by Hamilton Police.

Eyewitness Elizabeth Juliff, a neighbor, recounted the terrifying ordeal, stating that she and her husband were in bed when they heard gunshots. Initially mistaking the sound for passing cars, Juliff soon realized the severity of the situation. Their son, who was at a nearby stop sign, witnessed the entire incident.

Mayor Jeff Martin took to Facebook to emphasize the dangers faced by police officers and to remind the community of the risks involved in their line of duty.

  1. This is absolutely infuriating and heartbreaking. It’s sickening to think that a police officer, someone who puts their life on the line to protect us, was shot and injured while simply responding to a domestic violence call. It’s a stark reminder of the dangers our law enforcement officers face every single day. My thoughts and prayers go out to the injured officer and their family. It’s time we start appreciating and supporting our police officers instead of subjecting them to such senseless violence. This incident
