According to a press release, cops responded to the 1500 block of Sewell Avenue around 7:15 Tuesday night after hearing numerous gunshots in the area. Arriving officers located evidence of gunfire and surveillance center personnel were able to locate two suspects fleeing the area.

Two ACPD officers observed two men matching the description of the fleeing suspects in the 1900 block of Blaine Avenue on the porch of a home. As the officers began to speak with the men, one, identified as 21-year-old Ibinnassi Bailey of Atlantic City, attempted to flee. Cops were able to quickly detain him and place him in custody. An officer located a loaded handgun in Bailey’s waistband.
