Cops in Atlantic City are investigating two recent unrelated incidents in the city -- a man who was shot and another man who was found hanging from a balcony railing.

Authorities say just before 2:00 Sunday morning, ACPD officers responded to the 800 block of Maryland Avenue for a ShotSpotter alert. While responding, one officer was stopped by a man that had sustained a gunshot wound. The shooting victim, described only as a 27-year-old man from Atlantic City, was transported to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center-City Division for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Meanwhile, the Atlantic City Police Department is also investigating the death of a 59-year-old man from Plainsboro, NJ, who was found at the Club Wyndham Skyline Tower. In this incident, early Monday morning, officers responded to a report of a man who was hanging from the balcony of an upper-level floor. Arriving officers were taken to a hotel room by security where they found a rope tied around the railing of a balcony. The Atlantic City Fire Department responded and assisted in the recovery of the body.
