Investigators: Camden Shooting Wasn’t Random Act
Investigators say the masked man who entered a parked car in Camden and opened fire on its five occupants likely knew at least one of his victims.
Camden County prosecutors don’t believe Saturday night’s shooting — which left two people dead and three seriously wounded — was a random act. But they also say it doesn’t appear that drugs were a factor in the violence.
Prosecutors on Monday also say they haven’t determined a motive for the attack. The assailant remains at large.
The car was parked in an alley when the assailant approached and got in. He fired several shots, killing the 18-year-old driver, Jewel Manire, and 20-year-old Khalil Gibson of Camden.
Three other passengers — a 20-year-old woman and two 16-year-old girls — remained hospitalized Monday.
