Authorities in New Jersey on Friday are offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrests of two gunmen who opened fire on a home where two police officers and their newborn baby live.

The shooting in Camden marks the fourth time that law enforcement officers have been attacked nationwide in the span of one week.

The Camden County officers and their 10-day-old infant were inside their home in the 2900 block of Clinton Street just before midnight on Tuesday when six bullets struck it, authorities said.

Two New Jersey officers were at home with their 10-day-old baby late Tuesday when two gunmen opened fire on the Camden residence

Two bullets penetrated the front door of the house but the family were not harmed

Two bullets penetrated the home through the front door, but the family were on the second floor and no one was hurt, reported CBS Philadelphia.

‘It shocks the conscience that this occurred,’ Police Chief Joseph Wysocki said at a press conference.

He added: ‘I do know that this was a targeted attack against this residence and the officers inside.’

The FBI and other agencies have joined the investigation.

Authorities on Thursday located a 1998 Honda Odyssey that they believe was involved in the shooting. They are now trying to locate the minivan’s owner and passengers.

The officers remain on family and medical leave following the birth of their first child on September 5.

The police chief said he does not know why the new parents, assigned to Camden County Police Department’s Neighborhood Response Team, were targeted.

The male officer has been on the force for four years, and his partner joined the department two years ago.

‘We’re looking into every arrest that they have had. We’re not going to leave a rock unturned,’ he vowed.

Camden County Freeholder Louis Capelli did not mince words when discussing the attack, which he said was carried out by ‘scumbag thugs,’ reported NBC10.

‘You will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,’ he said, addressing the gunmen directly. ‘If you think you can get away with these crimes under the cover of some unfortunate acts that may have taken place in other parts of the nation or under cover of some national movement, you are wrong.

‘You will be prosecuted and you will be spending as much time in jail as you can possibly get because that’s where you both belong.’

Speaking at his daily briefing on Friday, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy said he was ‘shocked and disgusted’ by what he described as the gunmen’s ‘cowardly act.’

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Camden County Police Department at (856) 757-7042 or the Citizen’s Crime Commission at (215) 546-TIPS.

There has been a spate of attacks targeting law enforcement officers across the US over the past week, following a turbulent summer marked by mass protests against police brutality.

On Thursday, authorities in Arizona arrested a 17-year-old boy suspected of opening fire on two troopers.

According to an official statement, two Arizona Department of Public Safety troopers were sitting in an unmarked vehicle near 37th Avenue and Portland Street in Phoenix at around 9am on Thursday when a silver-colored sedan pulled up and sounded the horn.

A passenger exited the vehicle brandishing an assault rifle and fired shots at the troopers, who returned fire, according to DPS.
