EDISON - The city of Trenton is nearing a murder record for a full calendar year.

The city's 29th murder of 2013 happened Saturday. A man was shot in the head near Grand and Elm streets in the South Ward.

Though it's only mid-August, Trenton is now two killings away from its murder record of 31 deaths for the entire year in 2005.

Some residents blame massive police cuts, while others think Mayor Tony Mack's legal troubles play a role.
