South Jersey Man Convicted of Murdering 2 Men Outside Apartment Complex

A southern New Jersey man already serving time for armed robbery has been convicted of murdering two men in a 2011 shooting.

Twenty-eight-year-old James Harris, of Sicklerville, was convicted Friday by a jury on two counts of first-degree murder and two weapons offenses.

Authorities say the shooting happened Dec. 9, 2011, when Harris shot Kevin Gould and Daquan Hines inside a parked gold Toyota Camry outside Pine Ridge Apartments in Lindenwold.

A motive in the shooting is not clear.

Camden County prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo said in a statement Harris faces a maximum sentence of life in prison for each homicide.

Harris was not available for comment. It's unclear who his attorney was.

Authorities say Harris is currently serving a 17-year-sentence in federal prison for armed robbery.
