Media reports: Five people shot in Trenton, NJ, early Saturday morning


Five people were shot
at what police are calling an after-hours club in Trenton, NJ, early Saturday morning, according to NBC10, which also reported dozens of shell casings on the ground at the scene. The incident happened around 4:45a.m. on the 900 block of Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, according to 6ABC.

Two of the victims were initially reported to be in critical condition and the others were stable, according to an early report from trentonian.com, but they later tweeted that police sources were investigating the case as a homicide:

Two people were shot Thursday night in Newark, NJ, three days after a man was killed and another injured on the same block, according to a report from nj.com.

Police arrested a man they say fired a shot accidentally inside a Cherry Hill, NJ, office building Friday afternoon, according to CBS3.

The pregnant wife of a Pennsylvania State Trooper was killed Friday after the accidental discharge of a weapon inside their home in East Norriton, PA, according to 6ABC.

Four people have been wounded in shootings this weekend in Chicago.
