  • Visitors are seen at Art All Night in Trenton N.J

An annual arts festival in Trenton that was to continue today has instead been declared a "massive crime scene" by police following an early-morning shooting there that left one dead and 20 injured.

Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri told a news conference that 16 of the 20 injured were treated for gunshot wounds.

The 24-hour event, which is meant to showcase local talent, was being held at the Roebling Wire Works Building in Trenton and was attended by around at least one thousand people, authorities said.

He said that two suspects opened fire during the Art All Night festival that showcases local art, music and food. They say another suspected shooter is in custody. Fifteen of those injured suffered gunshot wounds and a 13 year-old boy is among the casualties.

But he injected a note of caution by making the step "subject to incoming data confirming our medium-term inflation outlook". Price growth surged to 1.9 percent in May, with higher oil prices the biggest factor lifting it to the ECB's target.

The Mercer County Prosecutor's Office homicide task force is taking the lead in the investigation. He said people started running down the street. One person, suspected to be behind the shooting, has been killed according to local officials.

The 24-hour arts festival, which included artwork submitted by local children, and an anti-gun violence project, has since been cancelled.

Trenton police Lt. Darren Zappley says multiple people were shot and taken to the hospital, where some are in surgery. That was the advertised closing time for the event, which began at 3 p.m. Saturday. "They bandaged him up and whisked him away", Nicolo said.

"It's with great regret that we announce that the remainder of Art All Night has been cancelled due to a tragic incident that occurred overnight", organisers wrote.
