ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say a New Jersey police officer remains in critical condition after he was shot during an exchange of gunfire outside an Atlantic City casino.
Acting Atlantic County Prosecutor Diane Ruberton said Saturday that the officer underwent surgery Saturday morning after the shooting that left one suspect dead.
Ruberton says investigators are searching for five people she described as suspects or persons of interest.
The officer was shot after a car stop of three men near a parking garage of Caesars casino. Prosecutors didn't say why the car was originally pulled over.
Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian says the shooting is a sad commentary on society and is an example of what happens when too many guns are in the wrong hands.
