20 hurt in mass shooting at New Jersey art festival

Mass Shooting

Mass Shooting

Police shot and killed one suspect, Tahaji Wells, who was on parole for a homicide related charge. The youngest victim, a 13-year-old boy, is in "extremely critical condition", he said. Four people - including a 13-year-old were critically injured.

The New Jersey shooting occurred amid a debate about US gun laws that was given fresh impetus by the massacre in February of 17 people at a high school in Parkland, Florida.

There are no metal detectors in the building, Onofri said.

What started the shooting is under investigation, but Onofri said Art All Night itself does not appear to have been the target.

One person is dead and at least 22 others have been injured in a mass shooting at an overnight arts festival in Trenton, New Jersey. It was one of several guns recovered at the scene.

Police initially put the injured toll at 20 but raised it after two more victims arrived at local hospitals.

The prosecutor said that two suspects opened fire around 2:45 a.m. during the Art All Night festival that showcases local art, music, food and films.

Russian Federation coach Cherchesov: We know how to stop Salah; Ramos...?
Edinson Cavani has revealed that he asked for Mohamed Salah's shirt because his children are fans of the Liverpool FC star. For me there's no shadow of a doubt there. "On top of being talented he is humble".

Cops say there could be more suspects and are questioning witnesses.

20 people were injured after shots rang out at the Art All Night festival in Trenton, New Jersey. "Everybody was having a nice time".

"He went down in the street, one of them ran around in front of him and was telling him to stay on the ground", Forchion said.

"We have historically brought in upward of collectively 10,000 people with no problems and this year, people came and obviously had other intentions that made it now really disruptive and unfortunate event", Jackson said. "It was pretty gnarly", Nicolo said.

There are also reports of an attempted carjacking nearby but it is not clear if it was linked to the shooting. "And the people fighting and shooting got mixed with the crowd that was running and they went out the door shooting". The vehicle sustained some damage. Authorities haven't yet had the chance to interview him over the shooting.

The 12 annual Art All Night festival was scheduled to continue on Sunday but was shut down after the shooting. She said she was leaving from her volunteer shift around 2am and heard "pop, pop, pop".

It's with great regret that we announce that the remainder of Art All Night has been cancelled due to a tragic incident. Event organizers said in a statement that all their staff members, volunteers, artists and musicians are accounted for. Our honest, heartfelt sympathies are with those who were injured. "We know we're getting stronger and better but we're a long way from getting rid of this senselessness".
