16-Year-Old Surrenders In Deadly Atlantic City Shooting

MAYS LANDING, N.J. (AP) — A southern New Jersey teenager sought in a shooting that left a man dead and a baby injured this summer has turned himself into authorities.

Atlantic County prosecutors say the 16-year-old Atlantic City boy faces several charges, including murder. He was being held at a youth detention center and it was not clear Saturday whether he has retained lawyer.

The youth, whose name was not released due to his age, is charged in the July 29 shooting death of 25-year-old Sedrick Lindo, who was shot while sitting on a porch outside the Carver Hall apartments in Atlantic City. A 3-month-old baby suffered undisclosed injuries when he was hit in the chest by what was believed to be shrapnel from a ricocheted bullet.
