Camden County Prosecutor Warren W. Faulk and Camden County Police Chief Scott Thomson reported the following shootings in Camden over the weekend.
The first was reported Saturday about 1 a.m. on the first block of York Street. A 45-year-old Camden man was asleep in his living room when he was struck in the leg and ankle. It appears the shooter or shooters fired through the closed front door of the residence. The victim has been released from the hospital.
The second shooting was reported about 3 p.m. Saturday. A 40-year-old Camden man was shot multiple times in a home on the 200 block of Branch Village. He has also been released.
The third incident was reported about 3:30 a.m. Sunday. Two Camden females, aged 17 and 19, were brought to Cooper Hospital in Camden with gunshot wounds. Both had been brought to the hospital separately by friends. The two victims appear to have been shot during an altercation at a parking lot near the intersection of Cooper Street and Delaware Avenue. The two victims are friends and their altercation apparently involved another group of people. The 19-year-old victim is in critical condition at Cooper Hospital. The 17-year-old is in stable condition.
