CAMDEN, N.J. -

The manhunt in Camden County continues for the suspects involved in a shooting that left two Camden police officers injured on Tuesday night.

Authorities are seeking the public's help in identifying the two individuals (seen here) who they say may have information concerning the shooting.

Two Camden County Metro Detectives were sitting at a red light in their unmarked vehicle at the intersection of Broadway and Walnut streets in Camden at around 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 7th, when two unidentified men opened fire on them.

Both detectives, whose identities have not been released at this time, were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

A male detective who was shot in the bicep and forearm was released from the hospital on Wednesday, August 8th. A female detective who was shot in the hand remains hospitalized but is expected to be released soon.

A motive remains unknown. Authorities are seeking two men who fled the scene in a white van.

If you recognize these individuals, do not approach them, instead, authorities say contact the Camden County Prosecutor's Office immediately at 609-820-7192.
