Atlantic City man wanted in October shooting

An Atlantic City man arrested in a drug raid last month is now wanted in a shooting that wounded a woman.
Yasin Sanders, 18, was one of two people who fired a gun in the Oct. 23 shooting in the 400 block of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, Lt. Kevin Fair said.
Police were called to the The Atlantic City Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance in locating the suspect wanted for shooting a woman.
A ShotSpotter alert brought police to the scene at 9:45 p.m., Fair said.
A 25-year-old Atlantic City woman suffered a graze wound, he said. She initially refused medical attention, but later was seen at the AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center’s City Campus.
An investigation led to charges against Sanders and a 15-year-old boy from Bridgeton.
Sanders and a 15-year-old from Bridgeton were arrested last month after a raid at Sander’s home found them both armed and with drugs, police said.

But Fair did say that the minor was served with his charges at the Harborfields Juvenile Detention Center.
It was not clear when Sanders was released from jail on the previous charges.
Sanders and the teen are charged with two counts each of aggravated assault, along with single counts of unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and conspiracy.
Anyone who sees Sanders or knows his whereabouts is asked to call police at 609-347-5766. Information may also be texted anonymously to tip411 (847411) beginning the text with ACPD.
