Police Release CCTV of Atlantic City Boardwalk Shooting

Surveillance cameras captured it all -- bullets flying into a crowd of people just off Atlantic City's famous boardwalk early Tuesday morning, after the city's Fourth of July celebration.

"The younger kids, they don't think twice about pulling out a gun and shooting somebody," the father of one of the victims told us. "It's a tragedy. Kids can't go to Atlantic City and walk down the boardwalk without something like this happening."

The Vineland man didn't want to be identified, but it was his 17-year-old son who was shot in the leg around 1 a.m. outside Bally's Casino on Michigan Avenue. A bullet also hit his 22-year-old stepson in the chest.

"I want to see them get caught," the father said.

So do investigators. They want to find the man who they say pulled out a gun and started shooting, following a fight between two groups. The victims were among close to 150-thousand people in A.C. for the resort's fireworks a few hours earlier.

  • So the argument for gun ownership is that every time a punk tried this, he would have 100 guns shooting back at him.

    Sure, it wouldn't stop the suicidal people, but the stupid punks might just have enough brain cells left to think twice.

    Surely, more gun ownership is potentially more protection against random acts like this?

      Take a look at the Blocking system here. I have been blocked by someone recently who posted a load of crap and then started posting great stuff. But I'm now blocked from even commenting favourably on his/her posts.

      That simple fact changes my attitude overnight.

      The mere fact that everyone around you may have a gun could prevent the bad elements from using one.

      A very broad statement, but I only ever see the stats on crime and gun usage in places where guns are limited.

      Do we alre More..

    • @ommadawn Canada and the swiss don't seem to have a gun/crime problems and they all can legally carry guns.....Us Brits have very strict guns laws (they are not illegal in this country as most Americans believe) I think its down to education....however you guys have had guns from the word go so its inbred in you, they are to normal if you get what I mean.

      Let me present a new argument...

      We cannot prevent the un-educated and criminal from having guns.

      We DO prevent the educated and honest from having guns.

      I say we have a 'system' where the educated and honest are by law laid out as targets with no defense.

      I say allow all to carry a gun and then let natural selection take place, under a common law.

      Murder is murder, self-defense is self-defense.

      At present, 99% of gun crime victims have no defense, by law.

      They are legally not More..
