A Woodbury man authorities say tried to kill his 36-year-old ex-girlfriend and shot another man in her home was arrested after a three-hour standoff with police early Tuesday morning.
Adam Kirk, 43, is alleged to have broken into a home in the 300 block of Liberty Avenue in Mt. Ephraim, bearing a shotgun, around 2 a.m. this morning.
Once within, Kirk allegedly entered the victim's bedroom, where he shot a 42-year-old man in the arm. Then, as the woman struggled with Kirk, the second man fled the home with her four children, aged 7 to 17, while the weapon was discharged a second time.
According to the Camden County Prosecutor's Office, Kirk then allegedly slashed at the woman with a knife. She received superficial wounds but was able to lock herself in a bathroom, where she called 9-1-1.
After police arrived, authorities say Kirk barricaded himself in a bedroom in the home, here he remained until surrendering to law enforcement at 5:40 a.m.
Kirk was charged with two counts of attempted homicide, two counts of aggravated assault, two counts of pointing a firearm, four counts of endangering the welfare of a child, burglary, three counts of possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and unlawful possession of a weapon.
A temporary restraining order was also filed against Kirk that bars him from having any contact with the victim. He is being held in the Camden County correctional facility in lieu of $1.015 million bail.
Both victims are reportedly in stable condition at Cooper Hospital in Camden.
