    Police investigate after a man is shot in Camden, N.J. (Published Monday, Feb 17, 2014)

    A man is behind bars accused of a shooting rampage inside an area home yesterday morning.

    Isaac Bruce, 24, of Camden is accused of shooting and killing Clementon, N.J.'s Marvin McClinton inside a home on the 1800 block of S 6th Street in Camden, N.J. Monday.

    According to prosecutors, Bruce showed up at the home around 1:30 a.m. with a shotgun in had -- something that was common for him and not a cause of concern.

    For some reason, around 4:30 a.m., Bruce allegedly used that shotgun to shoot McClinton on the second-floor. The force of the blast "sent the victim reeling downstairs," according to county prosecutors.

    Police found McClinton dead of a gunshot wound to the head at the foot of the stairs. He was 21 years old.

    According to prosecutors, Bruce also opened fire on a second person but missed, only hitting that person's hoodie.

    Bruce then fled the scene, according to investigators.

    Police quickly responded to the scene. They could be seen using flashlights as the searched door to door for clues.

    Police didn't say how they tracked down Bruce. He was expected to be arraigned on murder charges Tuesday afternoon.
