Atlantic City man charged in 2016 shooting arrested with loaded gun

An Atlantic City man already charged in a double shooting last year was arrested Wednesday with a loaded handgun in the same area.
Orion Austin, 21, and another man are charged in a November shooting that wounded a man and woman in Buzby Village in the city’s Chelsea Heights section.
At 2:41 p.m. Wednesday, Detective William Warner got information from a concerned citizen that Austin — now wanted on a traffic warrant out of Hamilton Township — was in Buzby Village, according to police and jail records.
Members of the Special Investigations Section found Austin on North Driver and arrested him, Sgt. Kevin Fair said.
At the time, he had a loaded handgun and 24 grams of marijuana, according to the report.
He was charged with several drug charges, including possession within a school zone, as well as unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon while committing a drug offense.
Austin was taken to the Atlantic County Justice Facility.
