DELCANO, N.J. — A police officer and a 21-year-old man were wounded in a shooting during a struggle early Tuesday in Delanco.

Patrolman Francisco Ambrifi, 40, responded to a 911 call from a resident of the 400 block of Delaware Avenue about a man causing a disturbance on the street shortly before 4 a.m. The officer encountered a man who was "behaving in a disorderly fashion" and who "failed to comply with officer's orders," and a struggle followed.
