5 Shootings in Atlantic City, 2 Killed
Police are looking for suspects after a violent weekend in Atlantic City.
Five shootings left two people dead outside the city’s new Tourism District. The killings bring the number of homicides this year to 14, up from 12 for all of 2010.
Atlantic City Police Sgt. Monica McMenamin told The Press of Atlantic City it was a busy weekend with both the entertainment in town and the number of shootings.
The resort hosted a sold-out concert featuring Jay-Z and Kanye West at Boardwalk Hall on Saturday night. Councilman Marty Small told the newspaper no connection should be drawn between the concert and the violence.
