Trenton, NJ art and music festival Art All Night was cancelled following a shooting that broke out around 2:45 on Sunday (6/17) morning. As CBS News reports, one person was killed and 20 were injured in the shooting and ensuing stampede from Roebling Wire Works, where around 1000 people were in the area for the all-night festival. The person who was killed, a 33-year-old man, is believed to be one of the shooters, and a second shooting suspect is in custody. Of the 20 injured, four, including a 13-year-old boy, are in critical condition.

We’re still processing much of this and we don’t have many answers at this time but please know that our staff, our volunteers, our artists and musicians all seem to be healthy and accounted for. Our sincere, heartfelt sympathies are with those who were injured.” Read their statement in full below.

Art All Night Trenton:

It’s with great regret that we announce that the remainder of Art All Night has been cancelled due to a tragic incident that occurred overnight.

We’re still processing much of this and we don’t have many answers at this time but please know that our staff, our volunteers, our artists and musicians all seem to be healthy and accounted for. Our sincere, heartfelt sympathies are with those who were injured.

We know there are a lot of questions and a lot of speculation at this point. We’re still trying ourselves to piece this entire situation together. What we do know is that we are currently unable to release any submitted artwork that is currently inside the Roebling Wire Works building. That being said, we promise you we’ll be in touch as soon as we have more questions we information on this. We truly appreciate your understanding and patience during this incredibly difficult and confusing situation.

We’re very shocked. We’re deeply saddened. Our hearts ache and our eyes are blurry but our dedication and resolve to building a better Trenton through community, creativity and inspiration will never fade. Not tonight. Not ever.
