The shooting reportedly occurred on Kenwood Avenue in Camden, New Jersey. The suspect allegedly fired several rounds from a handgun and hit a police officer who was sitting in his patrol car.
The victim was later transported to Cooper University Hospital, where he received medical treatment for injuries to his arm.
Meanwhile, authorities conducted an around-the-clock investigation and found the suspect two days after the non-fatal shooting. Law enforcement was able to track down the 21-year-old suspect, a Camden NJ resident, at an apartment located in Collingswood, New Jersey.
The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force staked out the home on the 200 block of Haddon Avenue in Collingswood, NJ. When the suspect emerged from the apartment, members of the task force instructed him to stop. At that point, the suspect allegedly ignored police commands and tried to flee the scene.
The subsequent chase sent police down several blocks, with the suspect reportedly hopping fences and trying to evade police through backyards. Police eventually found the suspect attempting to hide behind a shed.
When the suspect was placed under arrest, he was allegedly in possession of a loaded semi-automatic 9mm Sig Sauer handgun.
After being arrested and processed, the suspect was transported to the Camden County Jail. He was being held at the jail in lieu of a massive $1 million bail amount.
