MAYS LANDING — Three men have been arrested in a May shooting in Egg Harbor City, the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office said.
Jonattann Lopez, the last suspect sought in a May 18 shooting at the Philadelphia Village Apartments, was arrested Wednesday in Atlantic City without incident by the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office Gangs, Guns and Narcotics Unit, Atlantic City Police Department and the United States Marshals Fugitive Task Force.
Lopez also was sought in a Feb. 24 shooting at the Tropicana Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, where he was identified as the person who shot at a man entering the hotel lobby and damaged the building’s exterior, the Prosecutor’s Office said.
No one was injured in the May 18 shooting, but “significant gunfire erupted, with rounds hitting several structures,” Prosecutor Damon Tyner said in the release.
The Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office Gangs, Guns and Narcotics Unit and the Intelligence Unit became involved in the investigation on May 24, at the request of the Egg Harbor City police department.
The three suspects were identified through evidence and witness statements.
Timothy Davis, 19, of Mullica Township, was taken into custody May 26 and confessed he was one of the shooters involved, the Prosecutor’s Office said.
Investigators then executed a search warrant at the home of a second suspect, Emmanuel Izguierdo, 23, of Egg Harbor City, authorities said.
Lopez and Davis were both charged with two counts of aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a handgun, possession of a handgun for an unlawful purpose, two counts of third-degree assault and two counts of criminal mischief.
Lopez also was charged by Atlantic City police with aggravated assault and weapons charges in the shooting outside Tropicana.
Both were in the Atlantic County jail in Mays Landing.
Izguierdo was charged with two counts of aggravated assault, possession of a weapon (a baton) for unlawful purposes and possession of a prohibited device. Izguierdo is to be released on a summons, authorities said.
