JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — The widow of a man police say ambushed a rookie New Jersey police officer has apologized for saying that she wished her husband killed more officers.
Angelique Campbell, the widow of Lawrence Campbell, tells The Jersey Journal that she was sorry for the comments she made Sunday. She says she wants to apologize to the family of slain Officer Melvin Santiago.
Campbell says she will love her husband until the day she dies no matter what he did.
Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop called her earlier comments "disgusting" and "ignorant." He also lashed out at a memorial set up for Lawrence Campbell.
Police say they are looking for clues to explain why Campbell, who had prior drug arrests, would have committed such a violent act.
