10 wounded after shooting outside bar

May 27, 2019

TRENTON, N.J. — At least two gunmen fired into a crowd outside a bar in New Jersey’s capital city, wounding 10 people, two critically, but the motive for the shooting remains unknown, authorities said.

Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri said a vehicle pulled up to the corner outside Ramoneros Liquor and Bar in Trenton at about 12:25 a.m. Saturday and when the shooters fired more than 30 shots before fleeing.

Five men and five women were taken to a hospital with gunshot wounds. Two of the male victims were listed in critical but stable condition while the others were in stable condition.

Police Director Sheilah Coley said the 10 victims — eight Trenton residents, one person from Ewing Township and one from Willingboro — were “just out for a night of fun and then it turned into a night of violence.”

She said police were looking at surveillance footage and trying to identify the vehicle. State police were now providing help in patrolling the city, she said.
