Police Investigate Fatal Shooting Outside Camden House Party

CAMDEN, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Authorities in southern New Jersey say one man was killed and another wounded when gunfire erupted outside a Camden house party early Sunday, but it’s not yet known what sparked the shootings.

Camden County Prosecutor Warren Faulk said 36-year-old Elaido Castro of Camden was sitting in a parked van in the 100 block of Vine Street when he was shot several times around 2 a.m.

A 25-year-old city man, whose name was not released, was also shot in the incident. He was taken to Cooper University Hospital in Camden, where he was being treated for injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

Faulk said it was not clear how many shooters were involved and whether they had also attended the party.

    Camden has gotten worst since the lay offs , they have no money to pay but the mayor lives good tell her to give something up, they busy building parks so our kids can have places to sneak behind our backs and do things instead they should pay cops to at least try to save this city.

    I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, PennyTop.com
