Aversa’s Flower Shop posted on Facebook:
We wanted to take a moment and thank everyone for their concern. Today at approximately 5:30pm, the property behind the flower shop experienced a home invasion at gun point by three suspects. The flower shop was closed at the time and was not directly involved. We are unsure of all the details ourselves, but are doing all we can to give the GTPD access to the property if needed for their investigation. We appreciate the love and support we have received from the community and we will be open for business tomorrow. We would like to thank the Gloucester Township Police Department for their swift action.
At this time, the incident is under investigation by the Gloucester Township Police Department and the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office of New Jersey.

Is there going to be a update on the shooting in the house behind Aversa flowers? Was it drug related?
