Trenton Emergency Medical Services personnel rushed the victim to Capital Health Regional Medical Center, where he was initially listed in critical condition.

Trenton police confirmed that the incident was a stabbing, but did not release further information late last night.

Police spent the night looking for evidence in the mostly vacant street, peeling back boarded up windows and looking in trash cans.

The stabbing happened in a violent 24-hour period where Joshua Moore was killed after getting shot multiple times inside a van on Reservoir Street and Pennington Avenue Monday.

Around 4:45 p.m. on Tuesday, four people were shot on the 200 block of Spring Street.

One victim was listed in critical condition, but may also have succumbed to his injuries at the hospital. Two victims were said to be hospitalized in stable condition and one was treated and released.

The exact circumstances of that shooting have not been released.

All three incidents occurred within less than a mile of each other.

Anyone with information regarding any of these incidents is asked to call the Trenton Police confidential tipline at (609) 989-3663 or the Crimestoppers tipline at (609) 278-8477.

Those wishing to text a tip regarding the shooting can send a message labelled TCSTIPS to Trenton Crime Stoppers at 274637.
