Camden, N.J. – A Camden man was found guilty on multiple charges in the November 2018 shooting of a woman at the Cherry Hill Towers apartments, according to Acting Camden County Prosecutor Jill S. Mayer and Cherry Hill Police Chief William “Bud” Monaghan.
Officials say Brian Walker, 54, of Camden, was found guilty during two separate trials on the following charges:
One count of first-degree Attempted Murder
One count of second-degree Possession of a Firearm
One count of second-degree Possession of a Firearm with an Unlawful Purpose
One count of second-degree Certain Persons Not to Have Weapons
One count of third-degree Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon
One count of third-degree Aggravated Assault on a Domestic Violence Victim
One count of fourth-degree Aggravated Assault – Pointing a Firearm
One count of fourth-degree Stalking.
Officials say, Walker went to the parking lot of the Cherry Hill Towers Nov. 4, 2018 and waited for his estranged wife to approach her car. When she walked up with a friend, Walker shot her multiple times.
After the shooting, Walker fled to Florida before he was caught by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force – Tampa Division on Dec. 7, 2018.
Walker’s victim recovered from her injuries and testified during the six-week trials prosecuted by Acting Assistant Prosecutors Sonja Furlow and Colleen Gardner.
Jurors deliberated for around three hours before finding Walker guilty Feb. 25 on seven counts; the same jurors found Walker guilty March 3 of Certain Persons Not to Have Weapons in less than an hour.
Walker is scheduled to be sentenced April 24 before the honorable Judge Francisco Dominguez.
