1 Killed, 3 Wounded in Camden ‘Residential Speakeasy' Shooting

Shots fired at a "residential speakeasy" in New Jersey claimed the life of one person and wounded three others, officials said.

Camden County prosecutors and police said officers were in front of a home when they heard gunshots around 3:15 a.m. Saturday.

Officers approached the home, described as a local "residential speakeasy" or illegal bar, as people were leaving and found the four victims. They were taken to Cooper University Hospital.

Authorities said 27-year-old Resean McCormick was pronounced dead around 4:30 a.m. Saturday. A 24-year-old man, a 35-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman are being treated. One of the three was earlier said to be in critical but stable condition.

Authorities said, contrary to earlier reports, that no arrests had been made. Anyone with information is asked to contact investigators.
