It's now up to the jury. Did a N.J. man kill a child during a bloody Camden gang war?

Authorities say Brown, 20, belonged to the Centerville Bloods and was feuding with Amir Dixon, a member of the Hoover Crips.  Their dispute spilled into the streets in the 900 block of South Eighth Street, close to the child’s house, in the early evening hours of August 2016.

Gabrielle "Gabby" Hill-Carter was riding her bike outside her house when a stray bullet hit her in the head.
