The violence erupted Friday night inside the Pemberton Township home of Antwian Warthen, 29, the Burlington County Prosecutor's Office said in a news release.

“Upon arrival, they were informed that Warthen had just transported his cousin, Horace Warthen, 39, of Burlington City, to Capital Health at Deborah - Emergency Services,” the prosecutor's office said.

The cousin died of gunshot wounds.

Police found Antwian Warthen walking nearby and brought him in for questioning.

He was charged with murder, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and unlawful possession of a weapon.

He was awaiting a detention hearing and it could not learned whether he had retained a lawyer.
