Organizers 'shocked' by mass shooting at Trenton event

Posted: Updated:

TRENTON (AP) - The organizers behind the all-night New Jersey arts festival disrupted when gunfire broke out said they are deeply saddened but their dedication to building a better Trenton will never fade.

Two suspects opened fire around 2:45 a.m. during the crowded Art All Night Trenton festival that showcases local art, music and food.

Authorities say one suspect is dead and 20 people are injured. A second suspect is in custody.

Organizers said on Facebook Sunday the remainder of the festival has been cancelled and they are "still processing much of this."

They said they are "shocked" and "deeply saddened" but their "resolve to building a better Trenton through community, creativity and inspiration will never fade."

Art All Night volunteer Theresa Brown said she has never seen or heard violence like this.
