Trenton gunman shoots family car, hitting 4-year-old’s head
TRENTON – A 4-year-old girl and her father were injured when someone shot their car on Friday night.
Police said a man dressed in black fired several bullets into a red sedan as it traveled down Perry Street, just two blocks from the Trenton Fire Department.
The driver, a 34-year-old man, was shot several times in the chest and arm while a 30-year-old woman was shot in the upper shoulder. The 4-year-old was scratched on the head while an 8-year-old boy was not injured.
Police did not disclose the motive for the shooting.
Mayor Reed Gusciora, who visited the victim on Friday, identified them as family returning from a birthday party.
Police did not respond to New Jersey 101.5’s request for an update on the shooting as of Monday morning.
Gusciora fears the recent shootings in Trenton herald a violent summer. There have been seven homicides in Trenton this year, according to the Mercer County District Attorney’s Office, including one death this year of a person recovering from being shot in 2018. There was a record 40 homicides in Trenton in 2020.
“This gun violence must stop and it is unfortunate that it is becoming a daily occurrence in the cities of this country. I ask [Police] Director Sheilah Coley must put all available resources on the streets to prevent further escalation of violence this summer, ”said Gusciora.
Police asked anyone with information about Friday’s shooting to call the department’s anonymous hotline at 609-989-DRUG (3784).
