A Five Guys in New Jersey wants everyone to know that the chain doesnt hate police officers..
So why hasnt the chain started calling all officers by their first name? This is likely because New Jersey authorities are currently working to determine how an officer was killed in the line of duty while in the New Jersey State Police. As a result of our investigation we’ve learned that Officer Matthew Corrigan was struck in the face with a baton. He subsequently died.
After the shooting he was rushed to nearby Holy Cross Hospital in the city of Hempstead and was pronounced dead. As a result of our investigation we’ve learned that the other trooper was also injured, but is expected to survive. Both Officer Corrigan and Trooper Nippert attended the states second-largest police college as graduates, the State University of New Jersey’s (SUNY) Morrisville campus.
The states medical examiners office has not released an official cause of death for Officer Corrigan. However, the other troopers death is also under investigation by the New Jersey State Police to determine what role his actions played in the incident.
