Trenton (New Jersey) [United States], June 18 (ANI): One suspect was killed and at least twenty-two persons were injured on Sunday (local time) in a shooting at a 24-hour art festival in New Jersey's capital city Trenton in the United States.
Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri said that two suspects opened fire shortly before 2:45 a.m. at the 24-hour Art All Night show in the Roebling Market section of the city, Fox News reported.
