Authorities say a shooting at a party in South Jersey has left one man dead and two teenage girls wounded.

Camden County Prosecutor’s Office spokesman Andy McNeil said the shooting occurred around 11:30 p.m. Sunday in the parking lot of a business on Crescent Boulevard in Haddon Township, right at the border with Camden.

Eighteen-year-old Tyimer Bright, of Camden, was shot multiple times and was pronounced dead early Monday at Cooper University Hospital. A 17-year-old Camden girl was in stable condition there with a gunshot wound, while a 16-year-old Camden girl was treated for a graze wound.

A motive for the shooting remains under investigation.

Prosecutors declined to disclose further details on the shooting, including what type of weapon was used or how many shooters may have been involved.
