HAMILTON TOWNSHIP (MERCER)– One person was shot in the parking lot of the Krauser’s Food Store on Greenwood Avenue around 9:00 pm, Monday.
It appears that this shooting occurred during a multi-agency investigation that includes the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), Hamilton Police, Trenton Police, and possibly other agencies.
Sources tell MidJersey.news that a male went to Krauszer’s to purchase a gun illegally, when shots were exchanged and the suspect drove away in a car with New York plates. The vehicle, which was occupied by the suspect who was shot and two other suspects, escaped the perimeter that was set up by law enforcement.
The gunshot victim transported himself to the Trauma Center at Capital Health Regional Medical Center.
Trenton Police currently have three people in custody related to this incident.
MidJersey.news reached out to local police departments and were referred to the FBI as the lead agency. We have reached out to the FBI and are awaiting comment. Please check back for an update.
