Pleasantville, New Jersey — On May 24, 2022, Pleasantville Police received a 911 call at approximately 9:35 a.m. indicating that an individual had discharged a gun at the Dollar General store located on South New Road in Pleasantville. At approximately 9:37 a.m., a Pleasantville Police Officer responded to the Dollar General and discovered Mr. Whitted inside the store – with a handgun protruding from his right pocket. As additional officers arrived, Mr. Whitted walked toward the officers and refused to follow directions to stop and drop to the ground, at which time Whitted said to the officers “shoot me.” The officers attempted to de-escalate the situation by backing away and allowing Whitted to exit the store and stand on the front sidewalk. 

Whitted then reached for and placed his hand on the handgun in his right pocket, at which time five police officers discharged their duty firearms at him. Officers and an EMT rendered medical aid to Whitted. He was eventually taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, where he underwent hours of surgery. Whitted was charged in June with Unlawful Possession of a Weapon, Possession of a Weapon by Certain Persons Not to Have Weapons and Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose. Initially, Whitted’s charges were dropped through an administrative dismissal, but they were reinstated. He was taken to the Atlantic County jail after he was released from the hospital.
