There, cops say 21-year-old Tyrese J. McNair, of that address, was shot multiple times in the chest. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Bridgeton officers then located a 21-year-old man at Hampton and Giles Streets who had been shot in the abdomen and arm, according to a press release. That victim was taken to Cooper Hospital in Camden and was last known to be in critical condition.

Information about any possible suspect(s) in the shooting was not included in a press release Sunday.
