CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - A southern New Jersey man has admitted that he fatally shot another man following an argument at a barbershop.

Camden County prosecutors say 42-year-old Jamal Herrin, of Sicklerville, pleaded guilty Tuesday to aggravated manslaughter in the death of Terrance Barnum, who was killed on New Year’s Eve 2011. He now faces up to 25 years in prison when he’s sentenced July 17.

Witnesses said Herrin had a verbal dispute with several men who were in front of the business. He went to his car and returned with a handgun that he used to shoot the 40-year-old Barnum in the head.

No other injuries were reported in the shooting, but authorities say it was witnessed by some children.

Herrin was arrested three days later at a Gloucester County hotel.
