Suspect Arrested After Shooting at Police in Hamilton Township

Hamilton Twp Police Dept photo

Late Thursday night, Hamilton Township police responded to a residence in the Laureldale section of the township for the report of a domestic disturbance.

Upon arrival, two victims exited the home and advised police that the suspect, later identified as 29-year-old Vincent Hamburg of Mays Landing (pictured), was still inside the residence armed with a high powered rifle. Hamburg barricaded himself in the residence and refused to come out. The Atlantic County Emergency Response Team arrived on location and a perimeter was established around the home. During the incident, Hamburg fired the rifle at a Hamilton Township police vehicle from a window of the home, striking the vehicle. After several hours of negotiations between Hamburg and members from the Hamilton Township Police Department and Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office, Hamburg surrendered.

Hamburg was charged with three counts of aggravated assault, two counts of terroristic threats, one count of possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and one count of unlawful possession of a weapon. Bail was set by the Honorable JMC Switzer at $300,000 cash.

Assisting with the investigation was the Atlantic County Emergency Response Team, Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office, Egg Harbor City Police Department, Egg Harbor Township Police Department, Atlantic County OEM, and the Hamilton Township Rescue Squad.

No officers were injured.
