Camden Police Chief Boyd Woody said in a press release that shots were fired in the area of Cleveland Avenue and Chestnut Street about 3:12 p.m. Officers found one juvenile male dead from a gunshot wound to the chest, and another suffering from a gunshot wound to a foot.

The injured youth was taken to Ouachita County Medical Center.

Witnesses told Camden police that the two youths were walking to the intersection when four males got out of a truck that stopped at the intersection.
