ABSECON â€“ An unnamed man was hospitalized last night after he was shot in the leg by a pair of teens he had planned to buy drugs from.
The man told Absecon police he was shot around 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 22 when he went to the Oyster Bay Apartment Complex on California Avenue on the Absecon-Pleasantville border, Absecon police said.
However, the 19-year-old was robbed by two black male teens, including one who was armed with a handgun, police said. The victim struggled with the armed teen, who fired several shots, striking the victim in the left leg.
However, the victim was able to flee the area and later checked into the AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, City Division for treatment. AtlantiCare doctors immediately notified Absecon police who interviewed the man in the hospital.
The assailants are described as school-age teens who wore Pleasantville High School uniforms, police said. One of the males had short braids or dreadlocks and the second male was described as bald or as wearing very closely shaved hair.
Anyone with information should call Absecon Police Detective Mitch Levin at (609) 641-0667, ext. 217.
