Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo and Lindenwold Police Chief Thomas Brennan reported a suspect has been arrested in connection with a Lindenwold shooting.
Rashad Banks, 23, of Wilmington, Del., is charged with attempted murder for allegedly shooting a 26-year-old man at the Emerald Ridge apartment complex around 12:50 a.m. on June 23.
It is alleged the victim, a Lindenwold resident, was walking through the complex when Banks approached him and demanded money. After the victim stated he did not have money, Banks allegedly pulled a handgun from his pocket and shot the victim as he tried to flee.
The victim was taken by ambulance to Cooper University Hospital in Camden for treatment and was later released.
Banks was arrested last night in Camden by members of the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force and was remanded to the Camden County Jail.
Released Friday, July 31, 2015.
