Atlantic City Police Investigating Weekend Shooting, Hanging
Cops in Atlantic City are investigating two recent unrelated incidents in the city -- a man who was shot and another man who was found hanging from a balcony railing.
Authorities say just before 2:00 Sunday morning, ACPD officers responded to the 800 block of Maryland Avenue for a ShotSpotter alert. While responding, one officer was stopped by a man that had sustained a gunshot wound. The shooting victim, described only as a 27-year-old man from Atlantic City, was transported to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center-City Division for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
Meanwhile, the Atlantic City Police Department is also investigating the death of a 59-year-old man from Plainsboro, NJ, who was found at the Club Wyndham Skyline Tower. In this incident, early Monday morning, officers responded to a report of a man who was hanging from the balcony of an upper-level floor. Arriving officers were taken to a hotel room by security where they found a rope tied around the railing of a balcony. The Atlantic City Fire Department responded and assisted in the recovery of the body.
Anyone with information about either incident is urged to contact the Atlantic City Police Department's Criminal Investigations Section at (609) 347-5766. Information can also be submitted anonymously via text message to tip411 (847411); begin your message with "ACPD."
