The investigation into the shooting death of Atlantic City resident Demond Cottman entered its fifth day Wednesday, but officials familiar with the details have declined to comment.
Cottman, 21, was shot and killed about 1 a.m. Friday in the parking lot outside Macy’s at the Hamilton Mall.
Jay McKeen, a spokesman for the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office, said Wednesday the prosecutor would not be releasing any more information on the investigation at this time.
Atlantic City Council President Marty Small, who is a friend of Cottman’s father, said he had not heard any update on the investigation Wednesday.
There also has been no update on the status of Cottman’s older brother, Shadi Cottman, 26, who was shot in the leg during the incident and brought to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center in Atlantic City. On Friday, officials said Shadi Cottman was in stable condition.
Demond Cottman was a 2013 Atlantic City High School graduate and a standout wide receiver on the football team. He graduated from U.S. Air National Guard basic training in 2014.
On Sunday, hundreds attended his funeral at the All Wars Memorial Building in Atlantic City before heading to Lincoln Memorial Park in Mays Landing for burial.
