Man With Face Tattoos ID'd in Undercover Officer's Shooting: Detectives

A 21-year-old man with tattoos no his face and neck is the gunman who shot an undercover officer this week in Camden when he opened fire on the cop's car, according to detectives.

The booking photo police sent out Friday shows Victor Bennett with tattoos on his forehead, left cheek as well as the right side of his neck.

Detectives say Bennett shot at Officer Price Reed's car as he drove past the Camden man on Kenwood Avenue Wednesday night around 11:30 p.m.

Officer Reed was hit in the arm by a bullet fragment when several rounds hit his car.
