Atlantic City police are investigating the shooting of a man just before midnight Monday.

Police were called to the beach block of Tennessee Avenue at 11:58 p.m. for a male shot, Sgt. Monica McMenamin said. Kent Moe, 61, of Atlantic City, said he was going to his apartment across the street from the shooting when he was struck just below his knee.

Moe could not describe the shooter and said he did not know who would want to hurt him, according to the police report. He denied having problems with anyone in the area.

Police interviewed two men who had been sitting outside an apartment building a short distance from the shooting, but both denied having any information about the shooting, McMenamin said.

Anyone with any information about the shooting is asked to call police at 609-347-5766 or Crime Stoppers at 609-652-1234. Information can also be texted anonymously to tip411 (847411), beginning the text with ACPD.
