Woman killed, teen shot in Trenton

- Trenton police and crime scene investigators remained in the area of 8 Carver Lane late Friday after shots rang out early in the afternoon. 

A spokesperson for the Mercer County Prosecutors Office says a 58-year-old woman was killed and a 14-year-old girl was also shot. SkyFOX flew over the area soon after it happened.

Many neighbors were reluctant to talk on camera.  Doretta Wright-Simmons came home to find the street cordoned off a half block away from her home.

"We have beautiful homes here and down the street and right in the middle there's a problem that is actually being allowed to be a problem," she said. 

The shooting happened on the area of the block between a senior home and church.

"I was coming from my house to the church and I was surprised to see the police," said Oliver Cua. He is part of the congregation.

"We pray for the little girl that she survives. Our praise is for her to survive," he said.      
Information on exactly what happened has been limited.  Police were still out there more than five hours later.

"You have just a few people that are causing a major problem and that's something I feel strongly. We need to take a stand," said Wright-Simmons.

Police have not released the victim’s names or the condition of the teen.
