Egg Harbor Twp. Man Charged with Aggravated Manslaughter
An Egg Harbor Township man has been charged with aggravated manslaughter in the fatal shooting of an Atlantic City man last month.
Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon Tyner says 28-year-old Devon J. Hill has been charged with first degree aggravated manslaughter, second degree possession of a weapon, and second degree unlawful possession of a weapon.
Authorities say on the evening of November 21st, the Egg Harbor Township Police Department received several 911 calls reporting shots being fired at 201 Cedar Avenue. Officers from both the EHT and Pleasantville Police Departments responded and found 54-year-old Rennel Turner of Atlantic City lying unconscious in the driveway. Turner had multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene.
An autopsy determined Turner’s manner of death is homicide.
Tyner's office offered no further comment about the case.
