Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo and Camden County Police Chief Scott Thomson reported an arrest in a July 2014 homicide.
Jose A. Lopez, M/19, of Pennsauken, was charged Thursday in the killing of Nhat Tran.
On July 26, 2014, at 8:42 pm, Nhat Tran, M/22, of Camden, was found shot in a tan Nissan Sentra near the intersection of 34th and Rosedale Streets in Camden.
Detectives have pursued leads for the past several weeks and recently developed information that allowed them to charge Lopez.
When interviewed, Lopez told detectives he attempted to rob Tran and that during the robbery he shot Tran.
All persons charged with criminal offenses are innocent unless and until convicted in a court of law.
Arraignment is scheduled for tomorrow at 1:30 pm at the Camden County Courthouse, 101 South 5th Street in Camden, before the Honorable Angelo DiCamillo.
