Jerome Francis, 43, of Hamilton, and Chevaughn Fagan, 28, of Trenton, died after the double shooting, according to Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo J. Onofri.

The Mercer County Homicide Task Force and the Trenton Police Department are investigating, Onofri said Thursday, May 2. No arrests have been made, he said.

On Wednesday around 7:45 p.m., Trenton police responded to Prospect Street and Pennington Avenue with a ShotSpotter activation, triggering multiple gunshots.

Police found a male victim, later identified as Fagan, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds in the side parking lot of 812 Prospect St., Onofri said.

A second male victim, later identified as Francis, was discovered in the same parking lot in the driver's seat of a blue Infiniti QX60 with gunshot wounds to the chest, Onofri said.

The vehicle appeared to have severe damage to the front end and several airbags had deployed, he said.

He said investigators found three handguns, two cellphones and several bullet casings at the scene.

Fagan and Francis were taken to Capital Health Regional Medical Center, where they were pronounced dead a short time later, he said.
