Trenton Police director Sheilah A. Coley released the following statement

First and foremost, our condolences go out to the families of the victims of this senseless violence. The Trenton Police Department has been working with the community in an effort to reduce crime in the city, particularly violent crime. After a very difficult 2020, our cooperative efforts seem to be helping. We have not seen a murder in the city for 76 days. While this is not a cause for celebration, we believe it was because of our efforts to work directly with the community and we will continue to do so. Additionally, our law enforcement partners play an integral part in crime reduction. We will continue to work alongside our county, state, and federal law enforcement partners as part of a coordinated plan to root out drugs and guns in our neighborhoods. The result of such coordination was seen in a recent joint operation just last month that seized multiple firearms and arrested 18 individuals, several of whom were wanted for murder.

Anyone with information is asked to call (609) 989-6406. Information can also be emailed to mchtftips@mercercounty.org.
