New Jersey man allegedly shot another with hunting bow after fistfight

A New Jersey man reportedly faces murder charges after he allegedly shot another man with a hunting bow in an apparent dispute over a woman.

Camden County authorities told the Philadelphia Daily News that the arrow pierced Kereti Paulsen's stomach and perforated the iliac vein in his pelvis late Monday. The 25-year-old man was pronounced dead at Virtua Hospital in Berlin shortly after.

"He wasn't always the best person in the world, and he did a lot of stupid stuff, but he wasn't malicious in any way, and me and my daughter loved him," said Lauren Palmer, the mother of Paulsen's 5-year-old daughter, Aurora.

Authorities said Paulsen, of Cape May Court House, scuffled with another man outside a residence at Brill Avenue and Egg Harbor Road. Palmer said Paulsen had a rocky, on-and-off relationship with a woman who lived at the house.

Everyone except Paulsen went inside following the fistfight and a resident who was not involved, Timothy Canfield, allegedly emerged from the house with a compound bow and several arrows. Authorities said Canfield, 25, shot Paulsen once, striking his target.

Prosecutors said Canfield later tried to hide the bow — commonly used for deer-hunting — in a wooded area of Winslow Township.
