Two Atlantic City men in a heap of trouble for their crimes have been served a 67-count indictment by an Atlantic County Grand Jury.
Atlantic County Prosecutor Cary Shill announced Friday that the 67-count indictment includes charges of Gang Criminality, weapons offenses, attempted murder and narcotics charges.
It follows a lengthy investigation into several shootings and gun related crimes that took place in Atlantic City between January and May of this year.
The investigation resulted in the seizure of four semiautomatic handguns and the arrests of Quashawn Harris, 22, on February 24 in Atlantic City and Saalih Davis, 20, on May 31 in Atlantic City.
Harris and Davis didn't go quietly either as Prosecutor Shill said they both tried to run engaging in foot pursuits with Atlantic City Police.
Both men remain inside the walls and cells of the Atlantic County Justice Facility.
The 67-count indictment against them includes a number of serious charges.
- Gang Criminality
- Promoting Organized Street Crime
- Attempted Murder

"This was a cooperative investigation by the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office Guns, Gangs and Narcotics Unit, the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Intelligence Unit and the Atlantic City Police Department Violent Crimes Unit," Prosecutor Shill said in a statement.
