Obama: Shooting of officers reminder of sacrifices

Associated Press

HOLMDEL, N.J. — President Barack Obama says the wounding of five police officers in a New Jersey shootout reminds the country of the sacrifices that officers and their families make every day.

Two police officers were critically wounded Thursday morning during a shootout in Jersey City while three other officers were treated and released. Obama spoke hours later at a political fundraiser and a rally for New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine.
