Camden County Prosecutor Warren W. Faulk and Camden Police Chief Scott Thomson reported two unrelated homicides in the city Tuesday night.
Police received information on the first incident shortly after 8 p.m. Tuesday. Quenzell Morris, M/31, of Camden, had been shot multiple times at the intersection of 26th and Cramer streets in Camden. Morris was shot in what appeared to be a robbery. Another man he was with at the time, an 18-year-old Camden resident, was pistol whipped. That victim fled from the intersection initially but returned to find Morris shot. He helped transport Morris to Cooper Hospital, where Morris died at 9:45 p.m.
The second shooting was reported at 9:50 p.m. Two men, a Camden 33-year-old man and Alvin Cushion, M/24, of Camden, were shot in a 1997 tan Infiniti I30 at a Popeye’s chicken drive-through on the 2600 block of Mount Ephraim Avenue. The 33-year-old victim, who was shot in the left leg, was found at the Sovereign Bank on the 2400 block of Mount Ephraim Avenue. Police found Cushion shot multiple times still sitting in the rear of the Infiniti at a car wash on the 2500 block of Mount Ephraim Avenue. He died at 10:14 p.m. at Cooper Hospital.
The two homicides do not appear to be related.
