Prosecutor: Driver shot before car hit Camden home

Sunday, April 08, 2012

Prosecutors say a driver was shot multiple times before his sport utility vehicle crashed into a Camden home this weekend, leaving him dead and a passenger wounded.

Camden County Prosecutor Warren Faulk said investigators were still working Sunday to determine a motive for the shooting, which occurred around 9:30 p.m. Saturday.

Faulk said officers responding to reports of shots fired found 29-year-old Antonio Streater of Camden inside the SUV that had struck a York Street home. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Streater's passenger, identified only as a 31-year-old Camden man, was wounded in the shooting. But he was able to run to a nearby home and ask residents there to call 911.

Faulk said the man remained hospitalized Sunday, but further details on his condition were not disclosed.
