Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo and Audubon Police Chief Thomas Tassi reported an Audubon man has been charged for fatally shooting another man in the borough Saturday.

William A. Clark III, M/50, is charged with first-degree Murder for the death of Steven Johnston, M/52, of Audubon.

Around 2:55 a.m. Saturday, a man who identified himself as Clark called 911 and told the call taker that he killed Johnston by shooting him in the head at a residence on the 400 block of the South White Horse Pike in Audubon.

Officers arrived at the location minutes later and took Clark into custody without incident.

Police found the body of Johnston in a third-floor apartment.  He was dead from an apparent gunshot wound to the head.

In a recorded statement, Clark said he and Johnston, who was his roommate, were having a conversation inside their apartment.  Clark said he became upset during the conversation and shot Johnston.

Clark is being held at the Camden County Jail on $500,000 bail.

All persons charged with criminal offenses are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law.

Released Saturday, January 31, 2015.
