August 17, 2013 Trenton, New Jersey (Fios1NewsNJ ) – Trenton officer injured after gunfight remains in critical condition, victim says officer and his partner saved her life

A day after two police detectives were injured during a fatal shootout on Hobart Avenue, one remained in critical condition at the hospital and the other was released to finish his recovery at home, officials said yesterday.

Detective Edgar Rios underwent surgery in the morning and remained at Capital Health Regional Medical Center in Trenton, hospital spokeswoman Jayne O’Connor said. The 35-year police veteran was in critical but stable condition, police spokesman Lt. Mark Keiffer said.

Rios, 53, suffered gunshot wounds to the abdomen, causing internal bleeding, when he and Detective James Letts were investigating a domestic violence incident Thursday morning and a suspect opened fire on them. They returned fire and killed the shooter, who police identified as 23-year-old Eric McNeil.

Letts, who was shot in the shoulder, was released from the hospital yesterday and is recovering at home, O’Connor said. At Letts’ parents’ home in Hamilton yesterday, a woman who said she was his sister said he was doing well and recovering from his injury.

She did not give her name.
My heart goes out for them and their families. I love them officers, I love them to death.

Friends of Rios said they were guardedly optimistic that he will recover. He has had two surgeries and doctors put him in a medically-induced coma yesterday, according to two friends with knowledge of his condition.
