Rookie Jersey City Cop Ambushed and Executed

A rookie Jersey City cop was ambushed and executed by a murder suspect who moments earlier boasted, “Watch the TV news later — I’m going to be famous,” authorities said Sunday.

Officer Melvin Santiago, 23, was fatally shot in the head as he and other cops responded to a report of an armed robbery at a 24-hour Walgreens drugstore shortly after 4 a.m.

Santiago, who was wearing a bulletproof vest, was just getting out of the passenger seat of his patrol car when fugitive Lawrence Campbell came up and opened fire twice through the open door with a semiautomatic 9mm pistol, officials said.

Campbell — who had stolen the gun from a Walgreens security guard — then unleashed a barrage of bullets, leaving a string of 13 holes across the patrol car’s windshield.

Santiago’s partner, Ismael Martinez, dodged the fusillade and with the other cops returned fire, killing Campbell, 27. None of the other cops was hit.

Just before his predawn ambush, Campbell had walked into the drugstore near McGinley Square and asked a security guard for directions to the greeting-card aisle, officials said.
He then left, only to return minutes later and stab the guard in the arm with a knife and grab his gun, authorities said.

He never tried to rob the store.

Instead, surveillance video shows Campbell “walking outside and speaking to a witness, at which time he apologized for his conduct in Walgreens,” authorities said in a statement.
The killer told the bystander, “Watch the TV news later — I’m going to be famous,” said Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop.

At a news conference Sunday, Fulop said Santiago’s mom, Cathy McBride, had identified her son’s body at the hospital.

Grief-stricken, the mother “just kept repeating [his] badge number and saying that it’s not possible,” Fulop recounted.

Dozens of uniformed cops stood outside the Jersey City Medical Center and saluted as Santiago’s flag-draped body was carried into an ambulance.

“Today was a horrible day for Jersey City,” Fulop said.

McBride lashed out at his son’s killer, calling the thug a “piece of s- -t” and a “son of a bitch.”

“This guy deserves nothing . . . His name should be forgotten,” McBride said, crying outside her family’s Jersey City home.

“Don’t give him any notoriety. He killed my son. My son was 23 and a good kid and didn’t deserve to get a bullet in his head doing his job, all because someone wanted to be famous.”

Campbell had been on the lam since a slaying last week involving two other accomplices.

Fulop identified one of the other fugitives as Daniel Wilson, for whom he said cops have been “aggressively searching.”

Santiago, a lifelong Jersey City resident, joined the police force last year and graduated from the academy in December.

Friends and relatives said he had long dreamed of being a cop like his uncle, a retired Jersey City detective.

“He wanted to work the West District, which is known around here as the Wild, Wild West,” said next-door neighbor and longtime pal Gary Nahrwold, 24.

“It fits his character. He wanted the hardest district.”

Stepfather Alex McBride said Santiago scored a near-perfect 98 on his police entrance exam.

“He was like an angel to me — always had a smile, never any trouble, ever,” he said. “How do I deal with him gone?”

Santiago’s half-brother, also named Alex McBride, 13, was heard wailing in the home.

The wounded Walgreens security guard, Pierre Monsanto, 58, was released after hospital treatment, neighbors said.

His niece Ashley Etienne, 17, told The Jersey Journal that Monsanto, who works for a private firm, was “badly beaten.”

A Walgreens spokeswoman said the chain was “deeply regretful” over the violence. The Jersey City Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association said, “Words cannot adequately express our feelings about this senseless tragedy.”

Re: Rookie Jersey City Cop Ambushed and Executed

So instead of a community outpouring for the murdered cop, a memorial sprung up for the cop killer.

About two dozen candles and an assortment of empty liquor bottles – including two bottles of Petrón tequila – sit on the sidewalk. Above them, two white t-shirts fixed to the red brick wall feature messages to Campbell scrawled with black markers.

"Thug In Peace."

"Live Life My Bro."

"SEE U ON THE OTHER SIDE. LUV - DRAMA."

“REAL NIGGAZ DONT DIE,”

“Forever a ‘G’”

Re: Rookie Jersey City Cop Ambushed and Executed

That's not really that different than some DR Members who seem to applaud when a police officer gets hurt or dies. As a matter of fact, many DR Members often call for police officers to be murdered or killed for doing something caught on video that they don't agree with or found unjust. Although I'm personally appalled by this incident, I'm equally appalled by what some members continually post about murdering police or wishing officers would be killed.

Re: Rookie Jersey City Cop Ambushed and Executed

I'm usually all fuck the police because I live in Florida but when it comes to killing cops? That's just really low. Senselessly killing a cop for absolutely no reason? What the fuck. He was only a year older than me it always seems like the good ones and the young ones are the ones that end up dead.
