Camden County Prosecutor Warren W. Faulk and Camden County Police Chief Scott Thomson reported the primary suspect in an April shooting that severely injured a homeless woman is in custody.

Allan Mattocks, M/32, of the 2900 block of Westfield Avenue, was arrested Oct. 23 by members of the U.S. Marshals New York/New Jersey Fugitive Task Force. Law enforcement tracked Mattocks to an auto auction on Route 68 in Bordentown, NJ, where he was working washing cars.

He has been a fugitive since those charges were filed.

Mattocks is accused of abducting Warren off the street and taking her to a vacant lot behind 502 Rand Street in Camden. He is accused of shooting her in the head there.
