Toddler shot in the hand in Trenton, police investigating
TRENTON — Police in New Jersey's capital city are investigating after a 2-year-old boy was shot in the hand at a home on the north side of Trenton.
NJ.com reports officers were dispatched to a residence on Southard Street around 11:20 a.m. Monday after police received a call to report the boy's injury.
The toddler was transported to Capital Health Regional Medical Center, where he was treated for a wound to his finger that wasn't considered life-threatening.
Lt. Rolando Ramos says investigators are still trying to determine exactly how the child was shot.
The boy's injury comes a day after Trenton police responded to three separate shootings in which a total of 66 shots were fired and one man was wounded.
