ATLANTIC CITY — A 14-year-old has been charged with attempted murder stemming from a shooting last month.

On Friday night, officers with the Atlantic City police arrested the male teen in connection with a shooting the night of May 31 which left a 29-year-old man wounded.

In the area where the teen was arrested, police said one detective found a loaded handgun fitted with a high-capacity magazine.

It was also found to be an illegal “ghost gun" with no serial number, making the weapon difficult to trace, according to police.

Police also arrested two other men on Friday on charges of drug possession with intent to distribute.

Genesis Silva, 24, was accused of being in possession of 10 grams of suspected crack cocaine, a digital scale covered in a white powdery residue and $2,891 in cash.

Juan Antigua-Silva, 23, was found to be in possession of 24 grams of suspected heroin, four grams of suspected crack cocaine and another digital scale, according to police.

Silva and Antigua-Silva, both Atlantic City residents, were issued summonses, pending future court dates.

In addition to attempted murder, the 14-year-old also was charged with aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, possession of a high capacity magazine and possession of a “ghost gun”.

Silva was charged with possession of CDS, possession with intent to distribute CDS and resisting arrest.

Aquino-Silva was charged with two counts of possession of CDS, two counts of possession with intent to distribute CDS, possession with intent to distribute CDS in a school zone and possession of CDS paraphernalia.

The juvenile was taken to Harbor Fields Juvenile Detention Facility.

Anyone with potentially relevant information has been urged to contact the Atlantic City Police Department Violent Crimes Unit at 609-347-5766.
