Camden County Prosecutor Mary Colalillo and Camden County Police Chief Scott Thomson reported a Cherry Hill man was sentenced Thursday to 30 years in prison for a double shooting in Camden that left one man dead.
Arnaldo A. Medina, M/30, previously pleaded guilty to Aggravated Manslaughter in the death of Antonio Streater, M/29, of Camden, and Attempted Murder for the shooting of Streater’s older brother on April 7, 2012, in the area of 8th and York streets in Camden.
Medina, who was identified as a friend of the Streater family for 20 years, was in a moving vehicle with the brothers when he opened fire on them during an argument. Streater was shot five times in the face, arms and trunk. His brother was shot in the face.
The vehicle then crashed into a building and as Streater’s brother tried to get out Medina appeared to attempt to shoot again, but was believed to have been out of bullets.
Several of the victims’ family members addressed the court at Medina’s sentencing.
“My brother, Antonio, has a young child, and my nephew will now grow up without his father,” Jessica Streater said in a victim impact statement. “My young nephew will never truly know how loving and wonderful his dad was. My brother will never have the opportunity to see his beautiful son grow into an amazing person and an honorable young man. No child should ever have to lose a parent to such a horrific crime.”
Released Thursday, December 18, 2014.
