Chalfont cop shot; search continues for suspects

CHALFONT, Pa. - Police are looking for a person who shot one of their own early Monday morning.

It happened around 3:15 a.m. in the parking lot area of the Lenape Valley Swim Club, in the 100 block of Westview Avenue.

Officials said 32-year-old Jon Cousin stopped a suspicious vehicle and when he approached the car, an occupant of the car got out and fired at him.

The gunshot hit Cousin in the chest area, but he was wearing a bulletproof vest that stopped the bullet.

Cousin was taken to Abington Hospital where he was treated and released. He's expected to be okay. He's been on the force for three years.

Police are now looking for an older model maroon Oldsmobile with four suspects that fled the scene.

Bucks County and state K-9 units have been called to the scene to help search for the suspects.

The car was last seen southbound on Route 309.
