A 23-year-old New Jersey man is dead as the result of a shooting that took place around 12:41 a.m. on Saturday. Lt. Camden Cobb, spokesman for the Southampton County Sheriff’s Office, said that the victim’s name is being witheld until proper notifications can be made to the next of kin.

The shooting took place in the 31000 block of Carter Street in Franklin, which is in the Southampton Meadows trailer park off of Smith’s Ferry Road, and was allegedly the result of an argument among multiple people, stated Cobb. He added that the office has not received any other reports of injuries related to this shooting.

Deputies and investigators are pursuing all leads in the case, and a person of interest has been developed. Cobb said the office is asking anyone with information on this case to contact himself at 653-2100, or to provide information anonymously through Southampton/Franklin Crime Line by calling 653-2900.
