Shots Fired At Timber Creek
Around 9 p.m. on Monday evening, shots rang out at Timber Creek Apartments at 591 north Forrest Avenue.
In this ongoing investigation, Camden Police Chief George Smith said that according to eyewitnesses, two black males armed with shotguns and pistols fired several shots into the building and fled in a silver Dodge Intrepid. Another witness pointed out the suspects were most likely headed toward Huntingdon.
After notifying police units in Carroll County, nine city officers, including Smith, were able to locate a vehicle matching the description given by witnesses and arrest one man on the scene. Another black male remains at large. Names were withheld pending investigation.
Police are asking anyone with information about the case to contact Camden Police Department at (731) 584-4622.

Juvenile Faces Multiple Charges
A 15-year-old male suspect was detained early on Sunday morning after allegedly stealing a vehicle and crashing it near the high school, according to Sheriff Kenny Christopher.
The sheriff said that the teen had a bag that contained prescription drugs and pre-packaged marijuana for possible resale. Due to the boy’s age, authorities could not release more information about the case.
“We are working hard to get drugs off the streets for the safety of our children,: the sheriff said on Monday. “Unfortunately, some of the suspects are just children themselves. We need to work together to stop this growing epidemic.”
