MAYS LANDING — A 43-year-old Atlantic City man was convicted of a gun charge Wednesday after a three-day trial, Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon G. Tyner said Thursday.

Terri Bailey was convicted of unlawful possession of a handgun by a certain person previously convicted of an offense, Tyner said.

On March 29, 2018, Atlantic City police responded to the 600 block of North Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in response to an alert from the city’s gunshot-audio detection system, Tyner said. An investigation led officers to three men, one of whom was Bailey.

Bailey took off running, and in the process discarded a handgun, Tyner said. He ran into the School House Apartments and was later arrested by officers April 5, 2018.

Bailey is in custody at the Atlantic County jail. Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 16.
