Brigantine police investigate Friday night shooting

Brigantine police investigate Friday night shooting


BRIGANTINE — Police asked for the public’s help Tuesday after a shooting last week that left the intended victim uninjured.

About midnight Friday, officers responded to the 3700 block of Brigantine Boulevard for a report of shots fired, police said in a news release. There, they found the target, who had not been struck by gunfire.

Police did not identify the victim.

Police said they believe it was an isolated incident and residents should not be worried about random attacks in the city. However, they added that residents should remain vigilant, reporting all suspicious activity.

An investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information can call police at 609-266-7414.

Tips also can be forwarded to Atlantic County Crime Stoppers, which offers cash rewards for information leading to the arrest and indictment of those who commit crimes, at 609-652-1234 or 800-658-8477 (TIPS), or at crimestoppers

Contact: 609-272-7241

My beat is public safety, following police and crime. I started in January 2018 here at the Press covering Egg Harbor and Galloway townships. Before that, I worked at the Reading Eagle in Reading, Pa., covering crime and writing obituaries.
