Trenton – Shooting broke out at an all-night cultural festival in Trenton, New Jersey, early on Sunday, sending people fleeing and leaving at least one person dead and more than a dozen injured, police said.

The shooting began at the Art All Night festival – that showcases local art, music, and food – a little before 03:00 on Sunday morning.

The event began on Saturday afternoon and was scheduled to continue until Sunday afternoon. It typically draws thousands of people.

Trenton police Lt. Darren Zappley told The Trentonian that multiple people were shot and were taken to the hospital. The person who was killed was not immediately identified.

Angelo Nicolo told Philadelphia 6ABC TV that he and his brother were at the event when they heard loud popping sounds. He said people started running down the street.

"I saw two police officers escort a guy that got shot in the leg. They bandaged him up and whisked him away," Nicolo said.
