Pennsauken Man Indicted in Merchantville Homicide


Twenty-three-year-old Isaiah Pascall will stand trial for the February 22 shooting death of Joshua Simmons, 21, of Pennsauken.

A Pennsauken man charged in connection with the shooting death of another Pennsauken man in Merchantville will stand trial for the crime, according to the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office (CCPO).

Isaiah Pascall, 23, was indicted by a grand jury for the alleged first-degree murder of 21-year-old Joshua Simmons of Pennsauken.

Simmons was discovered on the sidewalk in the unit block of Russell Avenue in Pennsauken around 8:30 p.m. on February 22. He was transported to Kennedy Hospital in Cherry Hill and succumbed to his injuries about 30 minutes later.

“The shooting occurred shortly after a physical altercation involving an isolated group of individuals at that location,” the CCPO said in a statement.

Anyone charged with a crime is considered innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
