In Camden, various groups have offered a combined $60,000 for information that leads to the arrest of the gunmen who shot two city officers Aug. 7. The gunmen opened fire at two undercover Camden County Metro detectives who were sitting in their car at a red light about 8:30 p.m. at the intersection of Broadway and Walnut.
