Two Shooting Deaths in Camden New Years Eve
Authorities say two people were shot and killed on the last day of 2013 in Camden, bringing the city’s homicide count for the year to 57.
The Camden County prosecutor’s office identified the victims as 31-year-old Jorge Chavis and 23-year-old James Anderson, both of Camden. Police responding to reports of shots fired in the city’s Bergen Square neighborhood around midday Tuesday discovered their bodies with apparent gunshot wounds.
Police are seeking a man wearing a ski mask who reportedly fled the scene.
In 2012, Camden saw a record 67 homicides.
