Authorities are searching for an Atlantic City man charged with murder in a 2013 fatal shooting.
Abdul Bailey, 28, is wanted in the death of 21-year-old William Clegg, Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon G. Tyner said Wednesday.
At 2:29 p.m. May 4, 2013, Atlantic City police received a 911 call in reference to a shooting in the 500 block of North Indiana Avenue. Officers found Clegg, of Atlantic City, lying on the sidewalk with multiple gunshot wounds, Tyner said in a news release. Clegg was transported to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, City Campus, where he was pronounced dead.
Investigators determined Bailey and 26-year-old Austin Clark, of Bridgeton, lured Clegg outside a convenience store. One of them waited for Clegg on the sidewalk, the other in the alleyway. As Clegg walked by, he was shot by the man waiting in the alley, Tyner said. Clark also is charged with the murder of Clegg and is in custody.
Tyner warns the public that if you see Bailey, do not approach him. Notify law enforcement as soon as possible.
