Murder spike sparks outcry among Trenton residents
Residents are demanding better protection after seven murders were reported in the city of Trenton this month.
So far, nine murders have been documented in Trenton this year. The latest occurred Monday in an apartment building on Eisenhower Avenue. Police say 18-year-old Naquan Archie was gunned down in the doorway of an apartment. However, Archie didn?t live in the apartment he was found in. Angela Baldie, the tenant, says she has no idea why Archie was in her apartment when he died.
?I heard the shots. I ran, then I ran into my apartment and there he was laying on the floor,? Baldie said.
Neighbors say they don?t feel safe in the area anymore. Police plan to keep extra patrols on the streets to prevent more violence.
Meanwhile, police say they see no connections among the seven recent murders.
