MOUNT EPHRAIM A Woodbury man surrendered to police early Tuesday, more than three hours after he had broken into the home of a woman he had been romantically involved with, and injured her and another person.
Adam Kirk, 43, slashed the 36-year-old woman and shot a 42-year-old man who is now romantically involved with her, the Camden County Prosecutor's Office and Mount Ephraim police said.
Kirk and the woman ended a lengthy relationship three months ago. The couple's 7-year-old daughter and the woman's three other children, the oldest of whom is 17, live in the home on the 300 block of Liberty Avenue.
Kirk was charged with two counts each of attempted homicide and aggravated assault, four counts of endangering the welfare of a child, and burglary and weapons offenses.
He remains in the Camden County Jail on $1 million bail.
Authorities said that around 2 a.m., Kirk broke into the home armed with a shotgun. He charged into the bedroom and shot the man in the arm, authorities said.
As Kirk and the woman struggled, the man and her four children fled the home, authorities said.
Kirk fired again but missed the woman, who barricaded herself in the bathroom. Kirk tried to get into the bathroom.
She received superficial cuts while fending him off and called 911, the Prosecutor's Office said.
When police arrived, Kirk stopped attacking the woman and barricaded himself in the bathroom. He surrendered around 5:40 a.m.
A temporary order was also filed against Kirk barring him from having contact with the female victim.
Both victims are in stable condition at Cooper University Hospital in Camden.
