Camden County Man Charged With Murder After Shooting Victim With Bow And Arrow

By Chelsea Karnash

BERLIN, N.J. (CBS) -- A Camden county man has been charged with murder after he allegedly fatally shot a man with a bow and arrow.

Sometime between 10 and 10:45 p.m. on Monday, two men got into a fistfight at a home on Brill Avenue in Berlin.

The argument broke up, and all of the people at the house left except for 25-year-old Kereti Paulsen, of Cape May Court House.

Meanwhile, 25-year-old Timothy Canfield, who was not involved in the initial altercation, went outside carrying a compound bow and a quiver of arrows. Canfield then shot Paulsen in the stomach with an arrow.

Police found Paulsen in the backyard of the Brill Avenue home where he was shot. He was pronounced dead at Virtua Hospital a short while later.

Canfield was arrested and charged with murder after he admitted to driving to a wooded area in Winslow and disposing of the bow and arrows.
