A man from South Jersey was admitted to the hospital with life-threatening stab wounds and three others were treated for injuries after a fight involving seven men from three states on the casino floor at Tropicana Atlantic City, authorities said.

A man from Brooklyn and a man from Cary, NC, were later charged with attempted murder in connection with the casino fight, state police said. Two other men from New York were charged with robbery shortly after the 3 a.m. incident on Monday, state police said.

A 32-year-old man from Willingboro in Burlington County suffered life-threatening wounds, Trooper Alejandro Goez told BreakingAC on Tuesday. That victim's name and updated condition had not been released. He was hospitalized in serious condition on Monday. He was not charged.

A 33-year-old man from Hackensack in Burlington County also was treated for injuries and released. He was not charged.

In addition to the attempted murder charge, Jabari Cummings, 30, of Brooklyn was charged with assault, tampering with evidence, and possession of weapons and crack/cocaine.

The North Carolina man, Delroy McNeil, 32, also was injured in the fight. In addition to the attempted murder charge, McNeil was jailed on weapons and assault charges, police said.

Tyevon Walker, 22, of Brooklyn and Shaun Laney, 25, of Machias in Cattaraugus County, NY, were charged with robbery, police said.

The suspects -- all treated at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center’s City Campus -- were later taken to Atlantic County Justice Facility, Goez told BreakingAC earlier this week.
