An Atlantic City man has learned his fate after pleading guilty to charges in connection to a shooting last year.

On Monday, 30-year-old Tajideen Austin was sentenced to ten years behind bars for second-degree aggravated assault, second-degree possession of a handgun for an unlawful purpose, and first-degree unlawful possession of a handgun by a prior violent offender.

The Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office says on July 23, 2022, the Atlantic City Police Department responded to a report of a shooting.

Officers located a victim who had been shot several times in his lower back and extremities.

Through surveillance video and witness statements, the police identified Austin as the shooter.

A subsequent car stop on a vehicle driven by Austin led to the recovery of a loaded handgun.

Ballistics analysis confirmed that the recovered handgun was used to shoot the victim.

Under the terms of his plea agreement, Austin must serve at least 5 ½ years before becoming eligible for parole and upon his release, he will be under three years of parole supervision.
