Two Wounded In Separate Atlantic City Shootings

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Two men were shot in separate incidents Saturday in Atlantic City, but authorities say it doesn’t seem the shootings are connected.

Police say 23-year-old city resident Tyquin James was shot multiple times in the chest around 1:25 p.m. in front of Magellan Manor apartment complex. James had surgery a short time later and was hospitalized in serious condition, but he is expected to fully recover.

Two men were being questioned by police, but no charges have been filed.

The other shooting victim, 18-year-old Shahid Dixon, was wounded around noon in the 500 block of North Indiana Avenue. The bullet shattered Dixon’s femur and he was hospitalized in stable condition.

Further details on the incident were not disclosed.

But authorities were trying to determine if it was connected to gunfire that broke out in the same area Friday afternoon.

    You guys should stop complaining because, one the health care we have now isnt as good as it was supposed to be. also the law has just been signed so give it some time. so if u want to say u have the right to choose tell that to ur congress men or state official. If you do not have insurance and need one You can find full medical coverage at the lowest price search online for “Wise Health Insurance” If you have health insurance and do not care about cost just be happy about it and trust me you are not going to loose anything!
