Teenager Shot in Atlantic City Has Been Identified

The Press of Atlantic City

Atlantic City Police has released the name of the 13 year old teenager that was fatally shot yesterday outside of his school…..


His name was Angel Mercado-Santiago, and was a seventh grader at Pennsylvania Avenue School.


Amy Heinze witnessed the incident, and even tried to save Angel.  Amy is a nurse in the city.


According to the Press of Atlantic City:

Heinze was driving home when she saw the boys yelling at someone. She looked in her rear-view mirror in time to see a male — who she believes was older than the teens — throw down his bike.

At first, she thought he was going to fight them. Then, he reached into his waistband and pulled out a gun, she said.

“He just started shooting wildly into a group of kids,” Heinze said.

When she realized one boy had been shot, she made a U-turn onto the sidewalk, jumped out of her car and ran to the teen.

Paramedics and police arrived quickly, Heinze said.

A paramedic told her: “I think he’s gone.”


Anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact the Atlantic City police department criminal investigations unit at 609-347-5766
