The Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office said Kaneil Harris, 22, was found in a hallway inside the Howard Johnson’s on the Black Horse Pike around 11 a.m. after being being fatally shot.

NBC 40 reports that 5 men were taken into custody after a confrontation in Pleasantville involving the SWAT team.

No one has been charged with the slaying. But a 23-year-old man was arrested Monday and charged with weapons offenses. Police tell The Press of Atlantic City that George Neewilly fired a handgun in the same room where the victim was found.

Neewilly is in the Atlantic County Justice Facility on $150,000 bail.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
