Atlantic County prosecutors say city police responding to reports of shots fired found 24-year-old Kevin Couplin shortly before 10 p.m. Sunday in the 100 block of South Vermont Avenue. He was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.

An autopsy performed Monday by the state’s Southern Regional Medical Examiner’s Office determined that Couplin died from multiple gunshot wounds.

A motive for the shooting remains under investigation.
