Camden recorded its 48th homicide of the year Tuesday, putting the violence-weary city 11 deaths away from surpassing its annual record with more than three months to go.
City resident Stephen Thomas, 18, was shot multiple times near 35th Street and Rosedale Avenue in East Camden around 8:20 p.m., the Camden County Prosecutor's Office and city police said Wednesday.
Thomas was found lying in the street and died shortly afterward at Cooper University Hospital.
His shooting was one of four gun incidents in the city within 10 1/2 hours.
A 27-year-old Camden woman was wounded around 10 a.m. on the 900 block of Bailey Street in North Camden. Around 8:30 p.m., two men were shot - a 51-year-old near Ninth and Vine Streets in North Camden and a 24-year-old on the 1600 block of Pershing Street in Whitman Park. All three survived.
