Isaac Bruce, 24, of Camden, was charged with murder in connection with the shooting death of Marvin McClinton, of Clementon.
An investigation determined that Bruce arrived a home on the 1800 block of Sixth Street in Camden after 1:30 a.m. Monday morning with a shotgun. Bruce’s possession of the weapon didn’t alarm those in the home because he always carried it, according to investigators.
However, he stands accused of shooting McClinton in the face on the second story of the Camden home around 4:30 a.m. As a result of being shot, McClinton allegedly fell down the steps. He was dead at the foot of the steps by the time police arrived.
Detectives say Bruce then pointed his gun at another person in the home and shot twice. The person was standing on the first floor, and although the shots tore holes in the person’s sweatshirt, the person was not injured.
Bruce fled the scene, but was arrested and charged on Tuesday.
