Two people were shot last night, on two different occasions, in the same hour in Atlantic City.


According to The Press of Atlantic City:

Quayshawn Butcher, 23, of Galloway Township, told police he was parking his car in the third village of Stanley Holmes when a black male with dreadlocks wearing a denim jacket began firing at his vehicle.

The victim and his passenger fled in different directions, according to the report. Butcher then had a family member drive him to the hospital.


Later, police responded to an incident at  1100 block of Drexel Avenue.  Apparently, there was a large group fight, which resulted in a gunshot wound to the leg for 18-year old Laquan Davis.


The Violent Crimes Unit is investigating the shootings.
