Atlantic City police had a busy 90 minutes Monday night, including several shots fired calls and the recovery of a weapon.
No one was injured in the shootings, but a police officer was hurt in a crash responding to one of the calls, Sgt. Monica McMenamin said.
The first call came in at about 9:15 p.m., when a woman told police a man assaulted her inside a home on the 600 block of Drexel Avenue, and that he may have a gun, according to the report.
Inside the residence, police found a loaded shotgun. Two males and a juvenile female were taken into custody and were being interviewed by police. Charges had not yet been filed.
At 10:10 p.m., shots were fired in the 500 block of N. South Carolina Avenue. The suspect was wearing a mask and fired several rounds, according to the report. About 11 minutes later, shots were again fired in the same area.
Then, at 10:30 p.m., shots were fired in the area of Vermont and Atlantic avenues.
At 10:43 p.m., Officer Nicholas Berardis was involved in a motor vehicle crash at Maryland and Atlantic avenues while responding the shots fired call in his marked patrol car. Both vehicles were towed from the scene, McMenamin said. Berardis and the other driver were both treated at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center's City Campus, and released.
