A late-night shooting left one person injured and another man dead, spawning a homicide investigation derailing the new mayor’s community cleanup initiative on Bond Street Saturday morning.
“We are still going to do Bond Street,” Mayor Reed Gusciora said Saturday afternoon after he and a team of volunteers removed truckloads of garbage from nearby Sanford Street. “It got sidelined by the investigation, but we are going to continue on. It turned out Sanford was an all-day job anyway.”
Authorities identified the deceased victim as Jibri Chisholm, 26, of Trenton.
Gunfire erupted in Trenton’s North Ward about 11:55 p.m. Friday on Bond Street near Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, triggering a ShotSpotter activation in the 600 block of MLK. Officers quickly arrived on scene and found one man suffering from a gunshot graze wound and Chisholm suffering from multiple gunshot wounds just before midnight, authorities said.
