A Camden man wanted for fatally shooting another Camden resident at a fast food restaurant three weeks ago was arrested last night and will be arraigned today, authorities said.
David Porrata, 33, allegedly killed Franklin Parker, 36, on April 27 at a Crown Fried Chicken on the 200 block of Broadway, the Camden County Prosecutor's Office said. The shooting, which began as an altercation between Porrata, his friend and a group of other men about 5 a.m., was captured on the store's surveillance video.
Parker was sitting in a booth with a woman when the fight broke out. The pair moved to escape when gunfire erupted, police said. Parker was hit by stray bullet.
Porrata drove away in a rented Dodge Ram pickup, which was returned to the rental company the next day by two unidentified men.
Authorities charged Porrata with murder on April 28. Porrata, who was arrested by members of the U.S. Marshals Service, has been on the lam since the shooting.
