The gunman in the Friday morning shooting at a New Jersey police station obtained the firearm as he was being taken into custody for a domestic violence incident, a Phildaelphia-based CBS affiliate reports.
Gloucester Township police chief Harry Earle told the press that the gunman got into a confrontation with the officers inside the station around 5:30 a.m. Three officers were shot. One, who was shot just below his bulletproof vest, is undergoing surgery. The other two injured officers suffered minor wounds and are expected to be released from the hospital today.
The gunman was shot and killed by police at the scene.
