Two men have been charged in connection with a shooting that left two Pennsauken men injured, one of whom remains hospitalized.
Around midnight on June 30, authorities responded to the 4400 block of Marlton Pike for reports of gunfire and a large fight, according to a statement from the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office (CCPO).
Following an investigation, police arrested Tyron Cooper, 34, of Willingboro, and Marcus Johnson, 29, of Camden City. Both are being held in the Camden County Jail.
Cooper faces two counts of second-degree aggravated assault, one count of second-degree possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes, one first-degree count of unlawful possession of a weapon, and one second-degree count of certain persons not to possess weapons.
Johnson has been charted with one count each of second-degree possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes, second-degree unlawful possession of a weapon, and second-degree certain persons not to possess weapons.
The CCPO reported that one of the shooting victims has been released from the hospital. Another is still hospitalized, but his condition was not disclosed.
All persons charged with a crime are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law. An arrest is not a conviction.
