ShotSpotter does it, again. This technology has become such a helpful tool for law enforcement in Atlantic City.

On November 1, 2021, the Atlantic City Police responded to the 1500 block of Pacific Avenue because of the alert received from ShotSpotter, according to Atlantic City Police spokesman, Lt. Kevin Fair.

Subsequent to this, we can now confirm that the United States Marshals have arrested the second of two suspects who shot at each other during a fight, in which many gunshots rang out, however, neither of the two shooters was hit.

The two men, Vincent Aires and Samar Smiley were “involved in an altercation when each pulled out a handgun and fired multiple times at each other,” according to Fair.

Fair also confirmed that the Atlantic City police department received several anonymous tips from the tip411 system. This is a very important tool to help police do their job better. Fair confirmed that it materially aided this investigation.

Aires was arrested on November 30, 2021 at the New Jersey State Parole Board office in Pleasantville, Fair said.

On Tuesday, December 21, 2021, Smiley was arrested by the United States Marshals New York - New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force – Atlantic City Division.

This result is an excellent example of a successful collaboration between multi jurisdictional law enforcement professionals working very well together.
