Man Killed, 4 People Wounded In Camden Shooting

CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — Camden authorities say a gunman opened fire on a city street early Friday, killing a man and wounding four other people who were standing in line to use a nearby ATM.

Police Chief Scott Thomson says 31-year-old Kevin Johnson of Camden was shot multiple times after he apparently got into an argument with the gunman around 1:30 a.m.

Johnson was taken to Cooper University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Thomson says three men and a woman—all Camden residents—were wounded by stray gunfire, but none of their injuries appear to be life-threatening. They were among several people waiting in line to use the ATM.

The gunman fled the scene and remained on the lam Friday afternoon.

    @ guess who: I don’t think they would want to live around the likes of you anyways. There’s too much racism, hatred, and prejudiced in this world already. Yours is not needed.

        I’m not making excuses for anyone, nor am I a part of that group. However, I do have a lot of respect for the HUMAN race, unlike yourself. You’re prejudiced, and it’s probably not even your fault, because you were probably brought up to hate select groups of people. But, that’s no excuse either, because at some point, YOU are responsible for your OWN way of thinking. And I’m sure you know that there is both good and bad in ALL groups. Including yours/ours. All I’m saying is hatred never solves anything. It just makes matters worse. All that negative energy you’re spending on hating people, you could be spending on loving yourself. Something for you to ponder!!

        Never mind Anon, GW. He most likely lives in a safe White suburb and wouldn’t survive a night in Camden. And if he saw a flash mob headed his way, he thinks he wouldn’t be attacked because his heart is pure. These idiots learn too late. Ah well, nothing lost.

        BTW, not all of us have been brainwashed by the media to think that prejudice is a bad thing.

    I’m glad I don’t live in that babo on sanctuary.

    Now go censor that, CBS.

    In Camden, there are no HUMANS. There are all ANIMALS that we are forced to call ‘HUMAN’.

    Sometimes, I’d rather live among ANIMALS and not around HUMANS. At least animals are doing what animals do. You don’t see any ANIMALS trying to act HUMAN, do you? There a specific reason for that.
