Suspect is named in fatal Camden shooting
An arrest warrant has been issued in connection with a Friday morning homicide at a downtown Camden restaurant.
David Porrata, 33, of Camden, is wanted in the slaying of Franklin Parker, 36, also of Camden, the Camden County Prosecutor's Office announced Monday. A 22-year-old Camden man also was injured in the shooting.
The altercation broke out about 5 a.m. at the Crown Fried Chicken on the corner of Broadway and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard among a man with a gun, his friend, and a group of other men, according to the Prosecutor's Office. Parker was sitting in a booth with a woman during the fight. Once the incident turned violent, the pair attempted to escape, and Parker was struck by a stray bullet. Police believe that bullet also struck the 22-year-old man.
Porrata is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with knowledge of his whereabouts is asked to call 911. — Claudia Vargas
