CLEMENTON, N.J. - Three officers were shot Friday morning inside the Gloucester Township Police Station, and the suspected shooter has been shot and killed, officials say.

One male officer was shot twice, including once in the abdomen below his bullet-proof vest, and is in surgery this morning, police told the media during brief update Friday morning. That officer is reported to be in serious but stable condition at Cooper University Hospital.

Injuries to the other two officers, a man and a woman, were said to be "very minor."

Police said a suspect was under arrest in connection with a domestic violence-related incident when a violent struggle with officers ensued around 5:30 a.m.

The suspect "obtained a firearm" during the struggle, police said. Officers then returned fire, killing the suspect.

No details have been released about the deceased shooting suspect's identity.

The Camden County Prosecutor's Office is leading the investigation.

FOX 29's Stephanie Esposito arrived Friday morning as police were still hanging crime scene tape on the outside of the municipal building on Chews Landing Road.

A Crime Scene Investigation Units is now on location.

A neighbor said she heard a lot of sirens just before 6 a.m. When she looked out her window, she saw police quickly "throw" someone into the back of an ambulance, which then left for a nearby trauma center under police escort.

Asked how the suspect got a gun, Deputy Police Chief David Harkins said, "I can't release those details at this time."

A news conference with additional information is planned for 3 p.m. in a courtroom at the municipal building, police said.
