But a motive for the shootings remained unclear Monday.

Egg Harbor Township police say the shootings occurred early Saturday. Officers responding to the scene found two victims -- 22-year-old Rickesha Hinson and 23-year-old Laquine Demby -- who had been shot in their legs.

Both victims told police they heard a shot, but did not see the shooter.

The two were taken to a hospital for treatment, and while there authorities found the third victim, 25-year-old Arshan McGee, who also had been shot in the leg.

Authorities say all three shooting victims live in Atlantic City. Their wounds are not considered life-threatening.
