VOORHEES, N.J. -- Authorities are investigating a shooting that left a mother and son dead at a Camden County assisted living facility Sunday night.

It was 5:44 p.m. when police responded to a report of a shooting at Genesis HealthCare's Voorhees Center on the 3000 block of Evesham Road in Voorhees.

The two ate dinner together at the cafeteria within the facility and then the man took his mom back to her room.
