Original Story:
According to Chief Stacy Tappeiner, on November 14, 2013, at approximately 1157 pm, Officers from the Township of Hamilton Police Department 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 Vincent Hamburg, age 29 of Mays Landing, 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.

No officers were injured.

Vince is good kid and a war vet who has PTSD. This is the result of an ungrateful nation who ignored his cry for help. On Nov 12 he says "I need to be saved" on Facebook. How can we ask people to go to war just to leave them high and dry when they get home.
