A 17-year-old man was shot and killed in Atlantic City on Monday afternoon, authorities said.

An active homicide investigation began about 1 p.m. after the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office’s Major Crimes Unit responded to 2009 Blaine Ave., Prosecutor Damon G. Tyner said in a statement.

This is a cooperative investigation by the prosecutor’s office and Atlantic City Police Department.

Witnesses told police the victim was on a second-floor porch when he was struck by gunfire.
