On Aug. 23, 2014, at approximately 12:52 p.m., Atlantic City police and emergency medical personnel responded to Kentucky Avenue for a report of a man shot in the street. Upon arrival, police found Harmon lying on the ground, bleeding from the head. Harmon was transported to the AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center—City Division, with a gunshot wound to the face.

An intensive investigation by the Atlantic City Police Department Violent Crimes Unit led, 4 days later, to the issuance of a warrant for the arrest of Najee Marshall on charges of aggravated assault, robbery, conspiracy, and weapons offenses.
Marshall was arrested a month later, September 29, 2014, at the residence of a family member in Charlotte, North Carolina, by members of the Atlantic City Division of the United States Marshals Regional Fugitive Task Force, with assistance from the local Marshals’ Task Force in North Carolina.
