TRENTON – A firefighter was grazed by a stray bullet while working out inside a firehouse Tuesday night.

City spokesman Timothy Carroll said the firefighter was struck around 9 p.m. and suffered a minor laceration while on the second floor of Engine 1 and Ladder 1 on Calhoun Street. He was treated for his wound at a hospital and released, according to Carroll.

The firefighter told he was using the elliptical in the firehouse gym on the second floor when he heard shots fired outside the firehouse. He said two other bullets struck a refrigerator and a wall in the kitchen.

His fellow firefighters immediately treated the wound and checked him over before he was taken to a hospital.

Trenton Fire Director Ken Douglas told 6ABC Action News that firefighters already wear bulletproof vests on calls and was concerned about a shooting at a firehouse.

No arrests have been made in the incident.
