TRENTON — A Trenton teen was charged with murder in the shooting death of 16-year-old Ciony Kirkman last Sunday.

Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri said a 17-year-old male was arrested at the home of a relative on Friday night and charged with murder and six counts of assault for the April 24 incident. The teen, who was not identified by Onofri because he is a juvenile, is being held at the Middlesex County Youth Detention Center.

Kirkman was sitting in a Ford Windstar minivan on Jersey Street near Home Avenue with six other teens when she was shot. She died two days later and was the 5th person to be killed in Trenton in 2016.

The suspect is also being held for having a weapon for an unlawful purpose and unlawful possession of a weapon.

Police said the minivan was a stolen vehicle.
