The unnamed plainclothes detectives were wounded Aug. 7 as they sat in their SUV at a red light in Camden. One had a wound to the bicep and forearm and the other was struck in the hand. Both were treated and released.

The Twitter post said police were “closing in on” 19-year-old Alexander DeJesus and 26-year-old Ammar Hall “and won’t sleep until they are in cuffs.”

A $60,000 reward is posted for information leading to arrests.
