Details are limited but we thought we would share this story as some may have family members that work in or around Newark and this may impact their commute home this evening.

We are receiving reports that two Newark Police officers have been shot. We are advised that there is a swat situation going on on Bergen and Vassar Street. Newark police have not issued a statement yet and we have no information on the condition of the officers.

Governor Murphy issued the following tweet:

“I am aware of and closely monitoring an unfolding situation in Newark. I am in touch with local authorities and the State is providing resources as requested. We will continue to support local law enforcement and ensure that all residents are safe.”

We will update our page as additional details become available.
