CAMDEN — A 38-year-old man was shot and killed and another critically wounded early Sunday in an incident at a motorcycle clubhouse with a longtime city presence, police said.
Police responded to the Wheels of Soul clubhouse on the 800 block of Princess Avenue around 1:45 a.m. for a report of a shooting inside, according to both Acting Camden County Prosecutor Jill Mayer and Camden County Police Chief Joseph Wysocki.
Jermaine Wilkes, of Philadelphia, was pronounced dead at the scene. The second man who had been shot was taken to an area hospital where he remained in critical condition as of Sunday afternoon, Mayer said.
The second man was not publicly identified by police.
Police gave no further information on a possible motive for the shooting.
Wheels of Soul has been active in Camden and other parts of South Jersey since the mid 1970’s, according to a New York Times report about a shooting incident that left three motorcycle riders critically hurt. In that incident, 44 people were arrested, the same report said.
