22 wounded in shooting at New Jersey art festival

An early-morning shooting at an all-night arts festival in Trenton, N.J., left 22 people injured, including a 13-year-old boy who is in “extremely critical” condition, authorities said.

The shooting broke out inside the historic Roebling Wire Works building on Clinton Avenue around 2:45 a.m., according to Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri.

A Trenton law-enforcement official said the shooting stemmed from a dispute among individuals.

At least two suspects began shooting inside the annual Art All Night festival, a 24-hour music and arts festival that was scheduled to run from Saturday afternoon through Sunday. One of the shooters, a 33-year-old man, was believed to be shot and killed by police, Onofri said. Another suspect was apprehended by Trenton police officers. Police found multiple weapons at the event.
