Female murdered in Trenton just before the new year
UPDATE: The victim has been identified as 45-year-old Gladys Barrera.
The capital city couldn’t make it through the start of a new year without another murder.
A female was shot and killed Sunday night, marking the 24th homicide to occur in Trenton, which includes two hit-and-run deaths.
The female was shot in the 100 block of Brown Street around 11:30 p.m. and pronounced dead at the scene. A male was injured in the shooting as well, but he is expected to survive.
Of the 24 killings in 2017, 20 victims died by gunfire, two died by stabbing and two died by automobile.
Medical personnel have been so busy that The Trentonian selected all first responders working in the capital city as the newspaper’s 2017 Persons of the Year.
