TRENTON, N.J. (CBS) — A mother of two is fighting for her life after a barrage of bullets struck her home in Trenton on Monday morning. Police believe a large caliber rifle may have been used.
The shooting happened just before 2 a.m. on the 200 block of Home Avenue. When police arrived, they found a woman shot and at least 10 shell casings.
Neighbors woke up to gunfire on Home Avenue by Orange Street in Trenton. It’s a sound some are used to hearing and a crime scene some are used to seeing.
“You see somebody got shot because you can tell,” said one neighbor. “You got the tape.”
Police say a woman was on the other side of a bullet-ridden window during the attack. She was struck in the chest and is currently in critical condition.
Police haven’t released a motive but say someone opened fire with possibly a rifle or another type of long gun.
“It’s crazy, I don’t know what happened,” said another neighbor.
Trenton police have not yet said if any arrests have been made or any weapons recovered. Anyone with information is urged to call police at 609-989-4155.
