Everybody was running down the street. About 1,000 people were attending the art festival at the time. At least 22 were injured. 17 of the injured were treated for gunshot wounds, four of whom are in critical condition, including a 13-year-old boy. One man with a gunshot wound was transferred to Cooper University Hospital in Camden. One suspect, a 33-old man, was killed by police at the scene of incident. Another suspect was taken into custody.  “All indications are that this was a dispute between individuals that occurred at Art All Night,” Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri said Sunday morning.

Investigators are also looking into a possibly related attempted carjacking near the festival. Art All Night canceled the rest of the event following the shooting. On Sunday, there was crime scene tape surrounding the site. “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,” the organizers posted on Facebook. The 24-hours art festival was in its 12th year. It featured more than 1,500 works of art, live murals and graffiti, dozens of musical performances and a film festival.
