ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Atlantic City police say a teenager and a man were injured when shooting broke out early Tuesday morning on Atlantic City’s Boardwalk.

The wounds to a 17-year-old boy from Vineland and a 22-year-old man from Bridgeton were not considered life-threatening.

The fight broke out near Bally’s Park Place casino around 1 a.m. — hours after some 150,000 people were in the city for its Independence Day fireworks.

Police say the shooter fled on foot. A handgun was found at the bus terminal at Bally’s.
