On Sunday, twenty-two people, including a teenager, were injured in a shooting at a 24-hour art festival in Trenton, New Jersey, the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office said.
During a Sunday morning press conference, Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri said officials believe an officer shot and killed one of the suspects, a 33-year-old man. Another suspect was taken into custody.
“It absolutely could have been worse given the confined space and the number of shots that appeared to have been fired,” Onofri said.
The shooting occurred around 2:45 a.m. Sunday at the ‘Art All Night Trenton 2018’ festival at the Roebling Wire Works Building on the 600 block of South Clinton Avenue.
According to Onofri, multiple individuals who were attending the event opened fire in the venue. Police recovered multiple weapons.
Seventeen of the 22 victims were transported to nearby hospitals and treated for gunshot wounds, according to Capital Health Regional Medical Center and St. Francis Medical Center. Four of the victims are in critical condition, including a 13-year-old victim.
