TRENTON — Two more people are dead, and one is recovering from a gunshot wound at a local hospital after the second murder this past weekend in the Capital City.

County officials say that a man allegedly shot two people on the 100 block of Pennington Ave., Sunday evening, then was found dead soon after, apparently having killed himself nearby.

The Mercer County Homicide Task Force and the Trenton Police Department are investigating the incident.

At approximately 6:35 p.m. on March 26, 2023, Trenton Police responded to a Spot Shotter activation for multiple rounds in the 100 block of Pennington Avenue.  Upon arrival, officers located two gunshot victims at the intersection of Monroe Street and Pennington Avenue.

An adult female suffering from multiple gunshot wounds was transported to Capital Health Regional Medical Center and pronounced dead a short time later.

An adult male was transported to the hospital and is being treated for a gunshot wound to the hand.

While on scene, police learned from a concerned citizen that the suspect was inside of a residence on Pennington Avenue.  Officers entered the residence and located the suspect, an adult male, deceased from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.  A firearm was located next to his body.

The investigation is ongoing.  Police believe this is an isolated incident and there is no immediate threat to the public. Anyone with information is asked to contact MCHTF Detective Luis Vega at 609-989-6406. Information can also be emailed to mchtftips@mercercounty.org.
