Camden's last two homicide victims of 2013 have been identified, the Camden County Prosecutor's Office said Thursday.
Jorge Chavis, 31, and James Anderson, 23, both of Camden, were shot in a home off Pine Street on New Year's Eve, and were dead when officers arrived on the scene, authorities said.
Their deaths were apparently drug-related, according to previous reports.
Chavis and Anderson were the 56th and 57th killings in the city for 2013—lower than 2012's record of 67, but trailing only 1995's 58 for the third-worst total in the city's history.
The double homicide wasn't the only gun violence on New Year's Eve; a 2-year-old boy was shot by his father, police said, and another man was reportedly shot in the stomach near Woodrow Wilson High School.
Anyone with information on Chavis and Anderson's killings is asked to contact Camden County Prosecutor’s Office Detective Chuck Farrell at 609-743-1705 or Camden Police Detective Ryan Bell at 856-757-7420. Information can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
