Update: Suspect has surrendered to authorities.

Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo, Haddon Township Police Chief Mark Cavallo and Camden County Police Chief Scott Thomson are seeking the public’s help in finding a teenage fugitive wanted in connection with a shooting in Haddon Township that killed one teen and injured two others.

Brandon M. Spearman, 15, of Camden, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Tyimer Q. Bright and two counts of attempted murder in the shooting of two juvenile females.

Bright,18, of Camden, was shot multiple times at approximately 11:30 p.m. on April 5 outside a party on the 2800 block of Crescent Boulevard near the border of Camden and Haddon Township.  

He was pronounced dead at approximately 3:25 a.m. on April 6 at Cooper University Hospital in Camden.  The female victims, a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old, both from Camden, were wounded in the shooting and were treated at Cooper.

A second alleged shooter, a 17-year-old male from Camden, was detained the night of April 22 after an interview at the prosecutor’s office and charged early the following morning. He is charged with first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder.  His identity will not be released at this time because his charges have not yet been waived to adult court.  He is presently being held at an area juvenile correction center.

A U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force has been seeking Spearman since a warrant for his arrest was issued on April 23.  Anyone with information on Spearman’s whereabouts is urged to call 911 immediately.  The public should not attempt to apprehend this suspect.  He is to be considered armed and dangerous.

Spearman stands about 5-foot-6 and weighs approximately 140 pounds.  A photograph of him is posted below.
