Mother, toddler shot at barbecue in Trenton

Posted: Updated:

? A Trenton community is in shock after a barbecue ended with a mother and toddler being shot Sunday.

Police say shots rang out on Passaic Street hitting 23-year-old LaRhonda Harris and her 2-year-old daughter. Harris was treated and released, but her daughter will have to undergo surgery to remove a bullet from her thigh. Police are questioning a suspect and looking for another person.

Residents say gun violence has become too common on New Jersey streets and they say no child should have to endure the pain of being shot.
