Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo and Camden County Police Chief Scott Thomson announced an arrest has been made in a Camden homicide.
Braheem Carmickel, 26, of Camden, is charged with first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of his 25-year-old cousin, Kashif Carmickel of Camden.
Police found the victim lying at the intersection of Sycamore and Orchard streets in Camden after responding at approximately 12:34 a.m. on August 23 to a 911 call about a gunshot victim. Kashif Carmickel was taken by ambulance to Cooper University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 1:06 a.m. on August 23.
During the course of the investigation, detectives gathered cell phone and GPS evidence as well as surveillance footage that aided in identifying Braheem Carmickel as the alleged shooter. A warrant for his arrest was issued on Friday.
He was taken into custody by members of the U.S. Marshals Service Regional Fugitive Task Force around 6:15 p.m. today at his attorney’s office on the 500 block of Cooper Street in Camden. He was transported to Camden County Police headquarters and later remanded to the Camden County Jail in lieu of $1,000,000 bail. A future arraignment date will be scheduled in Superior Court.
All persons charged with criminal offenses are innocent unless and until convicted in a court of law.
Released Monday, November 2, 2015.
