Shooting on North 32nd Street


This page and the other pages in this series are the successors to the series of web-page about the Camden Fire Department that began with the page Camden Fire Department: The Fires of the Summer of 2011. On this and other pages in the series you will find pictures and information regarding different events and aspects of the fire service in Camden, New Jersey. 

I was in East Camden late in the afternoon of September 11 when a call over the radio sending Engine Company 9 to Beideman Avenue in the Baldwin's Run development, which formerly was known as Westfield Acres. There was some confusion as to what was going on and where, and it turned out to be for for good reason.

Camden police were pursuing a suspect in the 200 block of North 32nd Street who turned and faced them with a weapon. Police fired on the suspect, wounding him in two places. The suspect fled on foot to a house on Beideman Avenue, where he was apprehended. Once the situation was safe, EMS personnel went in and transported the suspect to Cooper Hospital.

After it was established as to what had taken place, Engine 9 went over to North 32nd Street and made sure that there was no risk of fire from the suspects vehicle.

As with the web page covering other Camden Fire Department events, if you can identify anyone that I've missed, please e-mail me. (I'm terrible at at names and faces).

Camden Man Shot by Police Faces Weapons Charges

An armed Camden man who was shot by police after a brief foot chase Tuesday has been charged with weapons offenses, authorities said Wednesday.

Bryheim Baskin, 20, remains in critical condition at Cooper University Hospital in Camden, the Camden County Prosecutor's Office and city police said.

Around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Camden police stopped Baskin on 32d Street near Westfield Avenue for driving carelessly. As officers pulled up behind Baskin's red 2008 Toyota, he "shifted his vehicle into reverse, ramming" the police vehicle, authorities said.

Officers then saw Baskin holding a gun as he got out of his car and ran toward Beideman Avenue, where he encountered police behind a house on the 200 block. A Camden officer fired once at Baskin when he refused an order to drop his gun, which was recovered at the scene.
