ATLANTIC CITY — Police have arrested a city teen in a shooting two weeks ago at Lighthouse Plaza that wounded two teens.

The 17-year-old’s name has not been released due to his age.

Police were called to the scene at about 8:20 p.m. Nov. 17, and found a 17-year-old with two gunshot wounds on the 100 block of North Vermont Avenue, Sgt. Monica McMenamin said. A short time later, an 18-year-old who knew the victim arrived at the scene and was arrested after he became belligerent.

At the police station, officers patting him down discovered the teen had been shot in the foot, McMenamin said. He had not told police of the injury.
