An 18-year-old man died Monday afternoon in an officer involved shooting in Atlantic City.

According to the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office, the 18-year-old was one of two armed suspects during an incident at the Stanley Holmes Village Apartment Complex.

Investigators say police were called to the complex Monday afternoon on the report of two men who were armed.
