Two Atlantic City teens arrested, guns recovered

Two juveniles were arrested and two guns recovered Tuesday, after an investigation into shots fired in Atlantic City.
Police were called to the first block of South Elberon Avenue at 4:50 p.m. for a report of gunshots, Sgt. Kevin Fair said.
While Detectives Will Herrerias and Jefferson Rivera were responding, they were notified that possible suspects were see running around the first block of North Boston Avenue, according to the report.
Two males were detained but a 17-year-old fled with officers chasing him, Fair said.
The teen jumped a fence, removed a handgun from his waist and discarded it in high grass before he was taken into custody, according to the report.
K-9 Officer James Miltenberger’s partner, Mongo, quickly found the loaded handgun, Fair said.
Officers responding to Elberon Avenue found evidence of gunfire, including shell casings, which did not match the recovered handgun, Fair said.
An investigation led to the search of a residence, resulting in the recovery of a rifle by Lt. Daniel Corcoran. A 14-year-old boy was arrested as a result.
The 17-year-old was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon, resisting arrest and obstruction of justice.
The 14-year-old was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.
Both are being held in the Harborfields Juvenile Detention Center in Egg Harbor City.
The investigation is still ongoing by the Street Crimes Unit.
