UPDATE 3: Fairfield NJ Officer Shot 5 times, currently in surgery. Suspects still at large.

UPDATE 3:

They now believe the vehicle is a BLACK DODGE CALIBER. They have found surveillance video from a mall showing that vehicle following him out of the parking lot. The talk is that he followed the officer from this mall area towards police HQ. While en-route he contacted a fellow officer to run the plate, but that officer was working a choking at a nearby restaurant and at the same time there was a massive structure fire that had a lot of other resources tied up. 

The suspects shot through the off-duty officer's door striking him 3 times in the abdomen. He then made his way from the vehicle to return fire. It is beleived that a couple fo rounds hit the suspect's vehicle.

There was a mild glimmer of hope Thursday night when they thought they found the vehicle abandoned in Brooklyn. Similar vehicle was found with 2 bullet holes in it. Word came out from the NJ State Police that it was false information.

Suspected motive is gang retaliation because this officer apparently arrested a gang member last month. cowards.

UPDATE 2:

The vehicle they are looking for is a BLACK DODGE NITRO with HEAVY TINT.

If anyone knows a vehicle that fits this description or knows anything about the incident is being urged to contact the Fairfield NJ Police. A $10,000.00 reward is being offered for information in the case.

 

 

UPDATE:

NJ police officer critical but stable after shooting

A New Jersey police officer who was shot on his way to work is recovering in the hospital Sunday morning. 

It happened less than a block from his police station in Fairfield., and the two men who shot him are still on the run. The motive is also a mystery.

The 26-year-old officer was on his way to work in his own car at around 6:15 p.m. Saturday, when, for some reason, he pulled over on Fairfield and Hollywood roads. And that's when someone gunned him down.

The patrolman, with three years on the force, ended up shot three times in the upper body. He did manage to return fire, but it's not known if he hit anything or anyone.

Moments later, other officers arrived at the scene after someone called 911 to report gunfire.
"We were able to get a description of the vehicle from him, and a description of the two suspects," Fairfield deputy police chief Steven Gutkin said.

The officer, lying wounded in the street, said suspects were in a Dodge Magnum station wagon.
"All we have is a black Magnum," Chief of Detectives Anthony Ambrose said. "That's all we have."

The officer was airlifted by a state police helicopter to University Hospital in Newark for emergency surgery. He remains in critical but stable condition.

"This is the first time in my 23 years in Fairfield that we've had an officer shot," Gutkin said. "So it's hitting us all pretty hard. All of our officers are here. They all came in voluntarily."

A statewide dragnet is in effect for the vehicle. A $10,000 reward is being offered for information in the case.

 Fairfield NJ Officer Shot 5 times, currently in surgery. Suspects still at large.

A Fairfield New Jersey Police Officer was shot and critically injured Saturday evening. 

The officer's metallic silver 4-door sedan sits abandoned in a warehouse parking lot, less than a mile away from police headquarters.

What happened to the person driving it, has sent Fairfield Police into overdrive.

"It's the first time in my 23 years in Fairfield that we've had an officer shot. So it's hitting us all pretty hard. All of our officers are here, they all came in voluntarily, including the ones that are not off," said Steven A. Gutkin, Fairfield Deputy Chief of Police.

The three year veteran was on his way to clock in for his 12-hour evening shift around 6:15 Saturday night.
Investigators are not saying why he may have pulled over on Fairfield Road and Hollywood Road.
A nearby resident called 911 to report shots fired, and that's when officers found out one of their own was down.

"When the officers from the Fairfield police arrived there, that's when they found the officer lying in the street, he had been shot several times," explained Anthony Ambrose, Chief of Dectectives for the Essex Co. Prosecutor's Office.


The officer was given medical treatment, right where he went down. Investigators believe he may have fired off 13 rounds before his attackers got away.

"We were able to get a description of the vehicle from him, and a description of the two suspects believed to be wanted for questioning, that's was about it," said Gutkin.

 The scariest part of this is that my Fianc√® is working tonight. I found out from him when he came home on his meal period a little edgy.. i KNEW something was up.. then this breaks on the local news station. They haven't even released the officer's name yet. A fellow officer's wife was one of the nurses to receive him..
This is when i stay up all night because i have state trooper friends working the highways now, i have my Fiancè out there, along with my friends working local municipalities..

Suspects are listed to be 2 black males in a black Dodge Magnum no plate # available. Probably already ditched the car.. They better find these Sons-of-Bitches

Caravan Will Accompany Officer's Widow to Killer's Execution

The Dallas Morning News via YellowBrix

GARLAND, TX – A busload of Garland police officers and their spouses will join a caravan of cars heading to Huntsville today for the scheduled execution of Kenneth Mosley.

Mosley, 51, killed Garland Officer Michael “David” Moore nearly 13 years ago during a failed bank robbery.
His execution was delayed twice last year, forcing the officer’s family, friends and colleagues to scuttle plans for the 350-mile round trip.

“Everybody’s been pretty quiet since we got the latest execution date,” said Officer Joe Harn, a spokesman for the Garland Police Department. “We think this one will be it.”
Moore’s wife and three children will join the caravan.

“We don’t know what to expect. This is all new to us,” said Sheila Moore, the officer’s widow.

As relatives began arriving at her home earlier in the week, there were other things to worry about, such as shuttling people from the airport and picking up extra groceries.

“Right now, I’m mainly concerned about the kids and the car,” Moore said with a laugh. “It’s all going to happen, one way or the other.”

Moore’s colleagues on the police force said they will be looking for closure when Mosley finally dies from a lethal injection sometime after 6 p.m. today.

“It’s been a long time, waiting for this day,” Harn said. “It’s pretty emotional for everyone to have it finally happen.”

The execution has forced the people who knew David Moore to recall what happened on Feb. 15, 1997, the day he was killed at a Bank One branch on West Centerville Road in Garland.

Moore was one of three officers who responded to a “suspicious person” call from a bank employee. While the other officers waited outside, Moore entered the bank and was directed toward Mosley, standing in a teller’s line.

Witnesses said Mosley was behaving strangely, breathing loudly and almost growling as he was standing there. Several employees had recognized him as the man who previously robbed the bank.

Moore came up behind Mosley and asked him to show his hands. A scuffle ensued, during which Mosley pulled a gun from his pocket and the two men crashed through a window.

Five shots rang out and Moore, who was wearing a bulletproof vest, never got up. Mosley was trying to run away from the bank when another Garland officer shot him in the wrist. He was taken into custody without incident.

Moore was airlifted to Baylor University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. He was 32 years old and had served nearly 10 years on the Garland force.

At a week-long trial later that year, Mosley would argue that he was simply trying to hand over his gun when it fired five times. The shooting was accidental, he insisted. But the jury didn’t buy it and found him guilty of capital murder after deliberating only 45 minutes. It took half an hour to decide on the death penalty.

Jason January, the Dallas County prosecutor in the case, recalled watching the bank’s videotape of the skirmish and said what happened was as clear as day.

“The officer gave Mosley every chance to give up peacefully,” said January, who is now in private practice. “David Moore was as professional as he could be.”

That memory makes it easier to accept Mosley’s execution by the state, January said.

“If I was a family member watching Mosley die, I would be thinking about the terrible thing that he did to a police officer,” he said. “It didn’t have to happen that way.”
