Just a few hours after Camden's new police commissioner and police chief announced the city's latest effort to crack down on violent crime, two men were shot in separate incidents.

The latest shooting happened just before three on Thursday morning at 20th and Federal streets. The victim was shot in the chest, then drove for several blocks before collapsing.

Medics took him to the hospital where there's no word yet on his condition.

About 10:30 on Wednesday night someone shot a man at Sixth and Erie streets. That victim drove himself to Cooper University Hospital where he is in serious condition.

So far, police have not indicated if they have any motives or suspects in either shooting.
