A 20-year-old woman was shot to death inside her city apartment Friday morning on the 200 block of Spring Street.

Officers responded to the house at 11:13 a.m. for a report of a shooting in progress,
Lt. Stephen Varn said. When police arrived, they found the victim in the second floor bedroom suffering from a gunshot wound to the shoulder area, authorities said.

The Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement that the woman, identified as Keyauna Hughey, was pronounced dead at the scene.

“Oh my God,” one neighbor said after learning the woman was murdered. “Oh stop playing.”

Multiple sources identified the victim as Jordan Camilia Siaz. She went by that name on social media and to people who knew her.

Neighbors described the woman as tall and skinny with dreads. No one at the scene said they heard gunshots.

According to neighbors, a woman living in the house was pregnant.

Authorities did not confirm if it was Hughey.

In August, Siaz posted a picture on Facebook of herself and a male — possibly her boyfriend — holding guns. Siaz has her tongue sticking out in the picture.

“They think we sweet,” she wrote. “I told em let’s play. I love daddy cuz he kno IMA ride so he gonna ride back.”

According to her Facebook page, Siaz studied at Mercer County Community College and went to Trenton Central High School West Campus.

The homicide task force is investigating the murder. It’s unknown if any suspects are in custody.

The killing is the city’s 17th homicide this year. If in fact the woman was pregnant, it can possibly count as two murders.
