CAMDEN -- Authorities say a Camden man has been arrested and charged in one of the two double fatal shootings in Camden this month.

Camden County Prosecutor May Eva Colalillo said Thursday that 32-year-old James Peterson was charged with two counts of first-degree murder.

Officials say he is charged with shooting 50-year-old Richard Lincoln and 33-year-old Angel Martinez in a house in Camden last Thursday.

Peterson was in Camden County jail on $2 million bail and is set to be arraigned Thursday afternoon. It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney who could comment on the charges.

It was the second double killing this month in Camden.
