Acting Trenton Police Director Steve Wilson has confirmed multiple arrests in five separate shootings in Trenton on Saturday. 

According to Acting Director Wilson, the fire shooting happened when a suspect fired a shot at a male in the area of Oakland and Hoffman earlier Saturday. 

Acting Director Wilson said police arrived and apprehended a suspect at the scene. A weapon was recovered during the investigating. 

The second shooting occurred a couple of hours later on Mead Street, where Acting Director Wilson said police arrived and found the uncooperative victim suffering a gunshot wound. 

"We believe that the victim's injuries are self-inflicted, but he nor his family would cooperate with the investigation," Acting Director Wilson said. 

At approximately 3 p.m., gunfire rang out in the 300 block of Stuyvesant Avenue. Officers arrived and found a male victim suffering a bullet wound in his head and a second individual struck by bullets. 

Acting Director Wilson said two suspects were swiftly apprehended for the shooting. 

Authorities said at around 9:25 p.m., Trenton Police found a woman suffering a non-life threatening gunshot wound in her neck near 205 Locust Street. The suspect fled the scene and is at large. 

In the remaining shooting incident, just before midnight Sunday, police responded to gunfire in the 400 block of Stuyvesant Avenue, where officers found a male victim struck by multiple bullets in his chest. 

Acting Director Wilson did not report injuries in the second Stuyvesant Avenue shooting. 

The Mercer County Prosecutor's Office has been notified of all the shooting incidents.
