A 20-year-old man  and a teenager from Atlantic City have been arrested in connection with a shooting, authorities said. 

Saalih Davis, 20,  was charged  with attempted murder, aggravated assault, conspiracy, weapons offenses and possessing heroin, according to Atlantic City Lt. Kevin Fair.

A 14-year-old, whose name has not been released since he is a juvenile offender, also was charged with attempted murder, Fair said. He was carrying two handguns when he was caught, Fair said. 

At 10:29 p.m. on Memorial Day, Atlantic City police responded to the 400 block of Kentucky Avenue on a ShotSpotter alert.

Police found a 35-year-old man from Bridgeton in Cumberland County with a gunshot wound, according to Fair. 

The victim, whose name was not released by police, was taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, City Division, with a serious but non-life threatening injury, Fair said.
