Barrage of Bullets Strikes Parked Audi Killing Man in Trenton; Injured Teen Arrives at Hospital

The Mercer County Homicide Task Force and the Trenton Police Department are investigating a shooting that resulted in the death of a 19-year-old male Wednesday morning.

Trenton police responded to the 900 block of East State Street just after 12:30 a.m. after the Shot Spotter gunshot detection system activated for multiple gunshots.

Upon arrival, police located an Audi parked on the street with more than 20 bullet strikes. A 19-year-old black male was found inside the vehicle with a gunshot wound to the head. He was transported to the hospital where he is in critical condition.

Police said a second shooting victim - only described as a 16-year-old black male - was located at the hospital suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg. He was treated and ultimately released, police added.

The investigation is ongoing and no arrests have been made.
