Gang Seeks Recruits to Kill More Jersey City Police Officers: Memo

Police in Jersey City are being warned after an internal department memo obtained by NBC 4 New York says a gang there is recruiting gang members across New Jersey to kill cops after a rookie police officer was slain responding to a call of an armed robbery over the weekend.

Melvin Santiago was killed early Sunday while responding to an armed robbery call at a 24-7 Walgreens. Police say Lawrence Campbell ambushed the 23-year-old outside of the store. Police returned fire, killing Campbell.

According to the memo, “information from a reliable source” within the gang indicates the gang is asking for help from members in Camden and Newark in shooting another police officer.

The gang is targeting officers working with a Department of Transportation traffic unit, the memo says. The advisory warns gang members will “attack and shoot Jersey City EMTs because they know police officers will respond immediately to their backup.”
