A man was found Wednesday evening shot and killed on the sidewalk in front of a residence on North Clinton Avenue.

According to law enforcement, around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, police were dispatched to the 300 block of North Clinton Avenue to investigate a “man down.” When officers arrived on scene, sources say, they found a black male suffering from a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers were still on-scene around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, and the victim could be seen lying against a fence in front of a residential dwelling. A white sheet covered his body, and a woman who witnesses identified as the victim’s relative could be heard sobbing from a block away.

Police said Wednesday evening that the victim’s identity is unknown at this time.

The case is being investigated by the Mercer County Homicide Task Force. Anyone with information is asked to call (609) 989-6406, or use the Trenton police confidential tip line at (609) 989-3663.
