Officials say 17-year-old Tashaughn Robinson had been shot multiple times.

He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

No arrests have been made in the case.

The slaying comes less than a week after gunfire at an all-night art festival in the city. That shooting left one suspect dead and more than a dozen people injured. Police have blamed the shooting on gangs.

Two men were also shot and injured in Trenton on Thursday.
