The Camden County Prosecutor's Office says a 25-year-old man was fatally shot early Thursday afternoon in the city's Whitman Park neighborhood.

Camden has long been known as one of the nation's most dangerous cities, but homicide haves become more rampant.

In 2012, a record 67 people were killed in the city of about 77,000.

In the first two months of that year, there were four killings.
