Woman Shot In Grocery In Camden

Posted: November 17, 1993

CAMDEN — The mother of a grocer was shot and critically wounded yesterday, apparently by a man who had purchased a hoagie a few minutes earlier at the store in the Parkside section.

The woman, whom Camden police identified as Kunson Silverstein, 62, of Browns Mills, was shot once in the chest with a handgun.

She was listed in critical condition last night in the intensive care unit at Cooper Hospital-University Medical Center, according to a hospital spokeswoman.

Investigators said David Silverstein, who operates the Corner Store, a small grocery in the 1500 block of Kenwood Avenue, had left his mother to tend the store briefly while he went to the post office. When he returned about 2:30 p.m., they said, he found that she had been shot.

She told him that she had been shot by the man who had bought a sandwich a short time earlier, according to police.

Police said last night that they had no suspects in the case. Authorities said they believed robbery was the motive for the shooting. An inventory had not been completed last night.
