Farnham Park is a popular area that many students at Hatch Middle School in Camden walk through. It's also across the street from the Camden Big Picture Learning Academy which serves as the location of a local Boys and Girls Club.
"That's my main concern," Kea Daniels, of Camden, told NBC10. "These students are coming from school. They don't want to be hurt. Some of them have to take this way back here."
Charles Williams of Southampton Township, New Jersey, witnessed the police response Tuesday. He told NBC10 he was at the park to pick up his son after wrestling practice.
"A lot of people come and they sit," Williams said. "All the guys come and read their papers. Kids come and play over there on the swings."

Her death marked the 25th homicide of the year in Camden City limits compared to 21 at the same time last year.
