Officials are seeking suspects after a shooter opened fire on the home of two New Jersey police officers and their young infant.

The home of two unnamed police officers from Camden County and their child was shot at six times earlier this week, officials said. The FBI is investigating the case.

"Thank God the officers and their baby were uninjured," Camden County Police Chief Joseph Wysocki said during a news conference.

Wysocki said he believes the attack was targeted as it comes after several other high-profile shootings on police officers, including an ambush on two Los Angeles officers last week.

"I do know that this was a targeted attack against this residence and the officers inside," Wysocki said.

A Honda Odyssey vehicle pulled up to the house before someone inside opened fire, according to authorities, who said they are seeking to speak with the owner, occupants, or friends of "anybody that operates this vehicle."

A $20,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest.
