Ocean City Police are looking for the assailants who shot a man in the downtown section of the resort early Monday morning.

Police responded to the area of N. Division Street and the Boardwalk at approximately 2:30 a.m. on Monday where an 18-year-old man was shot.

The man was taken to TidalHealth Peninsula Regional Hospital in Salisbury by members of Ocean City EMS with non-life-threatening injuries. 

The investigation is active, according to police, but preliminary findings indicate the shooting occurred after a brief altercation. The department added that there was no threat to the public that morning.

Police are combing through City Watch camera footage to identify the suspects, and on Monday and Tuesday released video clips with hopes the public could help with the search.

The videos, which were posted to the Ocean City Police Department Facebook page, depict five black men walking on the boards around the time of the incident.

Officials with the department encourage anyone with information to call the Tip Line at 410-520-5136, email them at crimetips@oceancitymd.gov, or call the Ocean City Police directly at 410-723-6610 and reference case number 2022-00-5210.

The public can also contact Detective Hoban at jhoban@oceancitymd.gov, or call the Criminal Investigation Division at 410-723-6604.
