Daylight shooting is 8th Camden slaying in 10 days

    A fatal shooting was the 8th slaying in 10 days in Camden.

    Some of the homicides in the deadly streak this month have been attributed to a squabble within the G-Shine Bloods gang.
    Thirty-two-year-old Luis Gonzalez was killed near the corner of 8th and Vine Streets in North Camden and a second man was grazed by a bullet on Thursday.

    The slaying was the 35th of the year in the city. The record for a year is 58 slayings in 1995.

    Police Chief Scott Thomson tells The Courier-Post of Cherry Hill that authorities are “throwing the kitchen sink at the problem.”
