Atlantic City, NJ, Man Sentenced For Aggravated Assault, Gun Possession
A 20-year-old Atlantic City man is headed to prison for shooting another man last year.
The Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office says on Monday, Amir Lampkin was sentenced to five years behind bars on second-degree aggravated assault and second-degree possession of a handgun without a permit charges.
On Saturday morning, November 12th, 2022, Atlantic City Police responded to the 200 block of North Kentucky Avenue for a report of a man who had been shot.
The victim, 32-year-old Karmor Dolleh of Atlantic City, was found with a gunshot wound to the left side of his hip area.
Through review of surveillance video, cell phones recovered at the scene, and witness statements, Lampkin was identified as the shooter.
On December 7th, an ACPD detective developed information regarding the whereabouts of Lampkin. That information was relayed to the Absecon Police Department, which took him into custody.
Lampkin must serve 85-percent of his sentence, which is a little more than four years, before becoming eligible for parole.
