Camden County Prosecutor Warren W. Faulk and Camden County Police Chief Scott Thomson reported a pair of non-fatal shootings in the city Tuesday night that left four injured.
The first victim, a 15-year-old male from Camden, was shot multiple times about 10:48 p.m. on the 800 block of Front Street in Camden. It appears the shooting stemmed from a physical altercation the teen was involved with. The victim was taken to Cooper Hospital in Camden and was listed in critical but stable condition Wednesday morning.
The second incident, reported at 11:42 p.m., left three injured. A 30-year-old Lindenwold woman, a 34-year-old Camden man and a 28-year-old Camden man were all struck by gunfire at the intersection of Kossuth and Chelton streets. At 2342 hours, CCPD was dispatched to Kossuth and Chelton for reports of three people shot. All three victims are being treated at Cooper Hospital in Camden.
