The Camden County Prosecutor’s Office and Camden County Police Department are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a man who may have information pertaining to a fatal shooting in Camden.

The victim, James Rhodes, was found lying in an alleyway after Camden County Police responded at approximately 9:20 p.m. on Friday (5/20/16) to the 2800 block of North Constitution Road in reference to a ShotSpotter activation. Rhodes, a 24-year-old East Orange resident, was transported to Cooper University Hospital where he was pronounced deceased at 9:40 p.m.
