Police: Two Trenton Men Shot at Homicide Scene Outside After-Hours Night Club

Nicole Mulvaney, Times of Trenton, March 10, 2014

One city man is critically wounded and another was injured today when shots were fired toward an impromptu memorial at the illegal, after-hours night club on Martin Luther King Boulevard where another city man died and others were seriously injured early Saturday morning, officials said.

A 44-year-old Trenton man is in extremely critical condition tonight after being shot in the head around 4 p.m. while sitting inside an SUV parked outside 919 Martin Luther King Blvd., Saturday’s homicide scene, said Casey DeBlasio, a spokeswoman for the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office.

“Multiple rounds were fired into the SUV,” DeBlasio said. “The SUV was struck multiple times.”


Another man, identified as a 21-year-old city resident, was shot in the hand while standing in a group of about 20 mourners gathered near the memorial site, Police Lt. Steve Varn said. {snip}

“Witness reports indicate there was one shooter that approached the area on foot who fired at the SUV and at the group of people, and fled,” DeBlasio said.

Police are investigating whether Saturday’s shootings are related to today’s incident, she said. {snip}

“They are investigating possible ties,” DeBlasio said. All avenues are being investigated, including the possibility of gang ties, she said.

In Saturday’s attack at the after-hours club, Charles White, 43, was shot in the head and pronounced dead hours later, DeBlasio said.

Several others were injured, including a 30-year-old Ewing man shot in the heart, lung and lower extremities who remains in critical condition tonight at Capital Health Regional Medical Center in Trenton, Varn said.

Police were called out to the establishment just before 5 a.m. on Saturday and found four people shot, First Assistant Prosecutor Angelo Onofri said. {snip}

    This should be in the dictionary under “ironic”.

      By whom? I’d file it under Predictable, myself.

        No doubt, how did it even make the news? It is as if the station started doing reports on planes landing safely. “Two blacks are shot outside an illegal club on MLK drive at a memorial for another victim of black violence.” And? That’s it…no report on one or more of the victims being ‘honor’ students that were considering filling out paperwork to get their GED so they could be neurosurgeons…or being a good father by ‘wanting’ to be part of their feral offspring’s life?

    Dang! You mean to tell me the Martin Luther Boulevard in YOUR town is dangerous too, and not just the one in MY town (Houston)?

  • DaveMed

    Apparently, MLK Jr.’s dreams were kind of violent.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      MLK and his backers are responsible for the ongoing low level race war against white Americans. When this country is finally taken back from liberals, blacks and 3rd world invaders, every statue and image of MLK will be smashed, in the same way they smashed statues and images of Lenin and Marx after the fall of communism in eastern Europe.

      • Simonetta

        I always thought that blacks would love to have those old commie statues of Uncle-Joe Stalin and Lenin lining all the various MLK Blvds in the USA. After all, they enslaved and killed *millions* of white people in the countries that they controlled, so “they be da man!”.

      • Strider73

        And there will be huge bonfires as “MLK Blvd.” street signs are taken down and burned. Then those roads will revert back to their original names.


          Jefferson Davies Way: – Robert E. Lee Blvd. – Nathan Bedford Forrest Ave. < Those are all fine names and would love to see them restored. However, I would also propose that a good 20% of the streets named after King be renamed James Earl Ray Blvd's. Than after a few years we can all have a hearty laugh comparing the quality of life on James Earl Ray Blvd's to their former name sake's.

    I always hold my memorial vigils at illegal after-hours clubs on MLKill Blvd.

    Don’t you?!

    The reason blacks can’t have nice things.

    • Kenner

      They can have them, just leave your door unlocked.

  • Trenton Makes, the World Takes.

    The only thing Trenton makes anymore are corruption indictments and body bags.

    Not quite as hip and vibrant as the black gang-banger custom of shooting up a funeral home or going up to the corpse in the casket and shooting it again just to make sure.

    Africans with their culture and customs sure are a hoot, aren’t they?

  • Undoubtedly another in the thousands of hit jobs done by the KKK on innocent blacks in the USA every year. KKKrazy, nomesayin?

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      Where is the KKK when you need them? They are the only crime-fighting organization in existence capable of reducing black-on-white crime to almost zero.

  • QuinnTheEskimo9

    Did this involve only blacks?

    In that case, who cares?

    • evilsandmich

      I was thinking the same thing; the local in news in Cleveland has a story like this almost every day.

  • TheAntidote

    If not for all the death the entire story could form part of a script for a Tyler Parry Madea movie. But the hot grease is like something out of a David Lynch movie. Only in the Bizarro negro universe could this happen: Trying to escape violence and death a huge fryer is overturned and the chicken and fish grease burns the womens’ legs.
    They shut down the minstrel shows years ago. Yet they go on and on.

    MLK Blvd in Trenton, NJ?

    Add this to the long list addresses that tell you everything you need to know about the neighborhood even if you’ve never been there, along with Malcolm X Ave in Detroit, the Cesar Chavez public housing estates in Los Angeles, Rosa Parks anything in any city, etc.

    MLK boulevard continues to grace our country with diversity.
