While speaking to The Trentonian on the phone on early Saturday morning Blakeley said that police must start cracking down on the “reckless clowns who reign mayhem on the people of the city of Trenton. This cannot be the new normal. This is another mass shooting that there must be a comprehensive response to. If something isn’t done, I wouldn’t recommend anyone go out in Trenton.”

This is the second mass shooting that this New Jersey area has had in the past year. Back in June 2018, there was mass shooting at an art fair in Trenton, New Jersey, in which 22 people were injured and one person was killed.
