Young mother killed in Atlantic City

A young mother was shot and killed in Atlantic City late Wednesday night.
Katusca Robles, known as Cecy, was found inside her Pennsylvania Avenue apartment with gunshot wounds, Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon Tyner said.
Police were called to the home in the 800 block of North Pennsylvania at 10:13 p.m., Tyner said.
The 18-year-old woman was taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center’s City Campus, where she was pronounced dead.
An autopsy is pending.
Robles’ son recently turned a month old.
This is the second fatal shooting in three days.
Jordan Reaves, 21, was shot and killed Sunday night, five days after 16-year-old Quran Bazemore died of injuries he suffered in a shooting on June 16.
Bazemore’s funeral was just hours before Robles was killed.
The string of violence involving the city’s youth has many in the community looking for answers.
