Sources say Bobby Shisler was shot in the leg and a fellow officer applied a tourniquet before he was taken to the hospital.
DEPTFORD TWP., New Jersey (WPVI) -- The New Jersey Attorney General's Office revealed new details Sunday on the shooting that injured a Deptford Township police officer and left another man dead.
It happened around 12:45 p.m. Friday in the area of Doman Avenue.
According to authorities, Deptford Township Officer Bobby Shisler was conducting a pedestrian stop on Delsea Drive when the suspect, identified as 24-year-old Mitchell Negron Jr., ran off.
There was a struggle between the officer and suspect during the chase and that ultimately led to gunfire.
Shisler, a four-year veteran assigned to Platoon B of the Patrol Division, was shot in the leg.
Sources say a fellow officer applied a tourniquet before he was taken to the hospital in a patrol car.
Negron was also shot. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators have not revealed who was shot by who or how many gunshots were fired. Officials did say that a Taurus .38 special revolver, which was not the officer's service weapon, was recovered at the scene.
Shisler underwent successful surgery at Cooper Medical Center and was placed in stable condition.
Cathy Pridgeon and her daughter Caitlin live on Andaloro Way, right between Delsea Drive and Doman Avenue.
"I thought I was hearing things and then my daughter came running downstairs and said, 'Did you just hear those gunshots?'" recalled Cathy.
"I heard three gunshots and I heard a lot of police sirens," said Caitlin.
A verified GoFundMe page was started to help support Shisler and his family. More than $78,000 has been raised since Friday.
The New Jersey Attorney General's Office is handling the investigation.
