25 year-old Jerome Damon was killed during a police shootout outside a casino Saturday morning, September 3, 2016.

Atlantic City Police Chief Henry White said it happened around 2:30 a.m. Saturday after two patrol officers stopped a group of men near the Caesars Casino parking deck along the 2100 block of Pacific Avenue.

“At this point I don’t know what the reason for the initial stop was,” White said, “but as the officers were getting out of the car, the males opened fire on our officers, striking one.”
