CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - A southern New Jersey man has pleaded guilty to a shooting that left another man dead and the victim’s older brother wounded.

Thirty-year-old Arnaldo Medina of Cherry Hill now faces 30 years in prison when he’s sentenced Dec. 18.

Camden County Prosecutor Mary Colalillo says the April 2012 shooting occurred while Medina and the two victims were riding in a car that was traveling through Camden.

The trio began arguing, and Medina shot 29-year-old Antonio Streater, of Camden, five times in the face, arms and torso. Streater’s brother was shot in the face.

The vehicle soon crashed into a building in the area of 8th and York streets, and Streater’s brother tried to flee. Medina apparently then tried again to shoot the man, but could not because he apparently ran out of bullets.

Colalillo announced Saturday that Medina pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter in Streater’s death, and attempted murder for the shooting of his brother. She said Medina had been a friend of the Streater family for 20 years.

Colalillo did not say what spurred the argument between the three men.
