TRENTON MAYOR ERIC E. JACKSON RELEASES STATEMENT ON TRAGIC MULTIPLE SHOOTING AT “ART ALL NIGHT”

(Trenton, NJ--- Sunday, June 17, 2018) Trenton Mayor Eric E. Jackson responded to the scene early in the morning of June 17 after being notified of multiple shootings at the annual Art All Night event that was being held at the historic Roebling Wire Works at 675 South Clinton Avenue. 

“Today truly marks another major tragedy for our country and for Trenton. I extend my sincere sympathy first and foremost to the victims of this senseless violence, and to their families, and the attendees and organizers of Art All Night.

“I ask our state for prayers for the victims, their families and our city as we experience yet another public multiple shooting and attack on our peace and civility in this country.

 “All shootings---whether multiple or singular, whether in a city or a suburb---are a crisis. In Trenton we have been tackling this issue for quite some time. This can’t be discarded as just random violence; this is a public health issue. We have to work cooperatively and collaboratively with parents and law enforcement to end this gun violence and destruction in our towns.
 

“It saddens me that a public attack such as this is what has brought major attention to our capital city on Father’s Day. This attention should have been for the actual Art All Night event that brings out more than 25,000 people annually to enjoy art in Trenton. 
 

“We are a strong and resilient city. And I want to assure every resident and visitor in the City of Trenton that my office, and the Trenton Police Department are taking this incident very seriously. We are working with the Mercer County Prosecutor’s office and all the neighboring law enforcement agencies to ensure the City of Trenton has increased security and that our streets and public venues are safe,” said Mayor Eric E. Jackson.

Any inquiries about the details of the shooting and the ongoing investigation should be directed to the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office.
