Officer shot after exchange of gunfire; 1 suspect killed

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (AP) -

New Jersey police say a suspect was fatally shot in an exchange of gunfire outside an Atlantic City casino and one police officer has been seriously wounded.
   Atlantic City police Chief Henry White said the shooting happened around 4 a.m. Saturday after officers stopped a car with three men near a parking garage of Caesars casino.
   White says at least one of the men in the car opened fire. Police were still looking for two other suspects and have closed streets in the area.
   The officer, whose name was not released, was taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center.
   Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian says the shooting is a sad commentary on society and is an example of what happens when too many guns are in the wrong hands.
