3 Jersey City police officers injured

Jersey City police converged on Rutgers Avenue, where three officers suffered minor injuries on Thursday morning.

Authorities said police were responding to reports of possible drug activity near 126 Rutgers Avenue just after 11 a.m.

Three officers found a man with a gun near the intersection of MacAdoo Avenue and Rutgers Avenue. Police said the man fired one shot but missed the officers.

However, the officers got minor injuries while apprehending the suspect, police said. They were taken to Jersey City Medical for treatment.

Investigators impounded a white minivan as evidence.

About a mile away, a wild gunfight unfolded earlier this month between police and two shooters, David N. Anderson and Francine Graham, at a kosher grocery store. The shooters and three civilians inside the store were killed. Police said Anderson and Graham killed a city detective at a cemetery before opening fire at the kosher store.
