Jones, 39, was struck multiple times by return fire and was pronounced dead at the scene, the chief said.

Garber also was shot multiple times; his life was saved by a bulletproof vest. He also suffered a graze wound to his head.

Thine suffered a cut to his abdomen and a graze wound to his chin, while Burns was shot in one of her feet. Both were taken to a hospital for treatment and were released later Friday.

The shooting will be reviewed by the state attorney general, as is customary with all shootings involving police officers. But Camden County prosecutor Warren Faulk said initial evidence shows that the officers responded to gunfire that was initiated by Jones and returned fire to save their lives and those of other officers in the building.
