One of three men arrested in an Egg Harbor City shooting is also charged in a shooting inside an Atlantic City casino valet area.
Jonnattan Lopez — also known as J-roc — was arrested in Atlantic City on Wednesday.
He is one of three men charged in connection with a May 18 gunfight at the Philadelphia Village Apartments in Egg Harbor City. No one was injured, but several buildings were damaged, and bullets narrowly missed striking a woman and her small children, Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon Tyner said.
The Prosecutor’s Office Gangs, Guns and Narcotics Unit was asked to join the investigation six days later, assisted by the Intelligence Unit. They were able to quickly secure evidence, get witness statements and identify the three suspects.
Timothy Davis, 19, of Mullica Township, was arrested in Mays Landing on May 26, by detectives from the Prosecutor’s Office. He confessed to being one of the shooters, Tyner said.
Davis is charged with two counts each of second-degree aggravated assault, third-degree assault and criminal mischief, along with unlawful possession of a handgun and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose. He is lodged in the Atlantic County Justice Facility.
Emmanuel Izguierdo’s Egg Harbor City home was then searched, and he was arrested on two counts of third-degree aggravated assault, along with possession of a weapon (an ASP baton) and possession of a prohibited device. The 25-year-old man was released on a summons, and was not taken to the jail for processing or a mugshot.
Lopez was arrested Wednesday in Atlantic City by the Gangs, Guns and Drug Unit, Atlantic City Police Department and the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force.

The Egg Harbor City man is also charged in the Feb. 24 shooting inside the Tropicana Hotel and Casino valet area.
