Yesterday, the Jersey City police said that officer Marc DiNardo, who was shot in the face by a shooting suspect last week, was not expected to survive and that his "demise is imminent." The 37-year-old father of three is still on life support (his family decided to donate his organs) but is expected to be taken off life support some time today. A fellow police officer read a statement from DiNardo's family, "Marc was not a selfish man. He was a moral man, a man who gave of himself to those who could not care for themselves." And early this morning along Jersey City's Communipaw Avenue, three robbery suspects shot at police officers (at least nine times). No one was shot; the suspects were all arrested after ramming their car into a police cruiser. Update: DiNardo died at 9:35 a.m.; NJ.com reports, "DiNardo, who would have turned 38 Wednesday, is survived by his wife, two daughters, ages 4 and 1, a 3-year-old son and his parents. His father is a retired Jersey City police lieutenant."
