South Jersey man indicted in daylight double killing caught on video

NJ.com logo NJ.com 11/30/2020 Matt Gray, nj.com

A grand jury has indicted a Salem County resident on murder charges in the July shooting deaths of two men.

Surveillance video allegedly captured James T. Bundy, 33, of Quinton Township, as he stood on Olive Street in Salem City on the afternoon of July 12 speaking with two people in a car, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

He then pulled a gun and fired repeatedly into the small Chevrolet sedan, investigators said.

Lee A. Williams Jr., 29, of Carneys Point Township, fell from the passenger side of the car into the street, while the wounded driver, Jerry D. Taylor, 25, of Salem, drove away and crashed into a parked pickup truck a short distance down the street.

Bundy allegedly continued firing on Williams as the victim laid on the ground, investigators said, then walked away, climbed a fence and disappeared from view.

Williams died a short time later at a hospital, while Taylor, who was found in the car, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers recovered 14 shell casings from the middle of the street.

Witness interviews and video surveillance from multiple cameras led investigators to identify Bundy as the killer, according to the affidavit.

He was arrested without incident on July 17 and placed in Salem County Correctional Facility, where he remains pending trial.

A Salem County grand jury indicted Bundy last week on two counts of first-degree murder, along with aggravated assault and weapons offenses, including possession by a convicted person. His indictment notes prior convictions on drug, weapons and hindering charges.
