The officers have been with the department for four years and two years. They both remain on leave.
Thursday morning, investigators located a 1998 dark-colored Honda Odyssey that they believe was involved in the incident. No arrests have been made however.
Police are seeking the public’s help to find the gunmen and law enforcement officials are offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
“I want to send a clear message to the scumbag thugs behind this senseless act. We’re coming to get you," Camden County Freeholder Louis Capelli said. "You will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
