New Jersey arts festival: One Shooter Dead and 22 injured

At least 22 people, including a 13-year-old boy, were injured in a gun attack at an all-night arts festival in Trenton, in the US state of New Jersey.

Police say at least two men opened fire at around 03:00 local time (07:00 GMT) as 1,000 people were enjoying the local art, music, and food.

One of the suspects, a 33-year-old man, was shot dead and another is in custody, a local prosecutor said.

Four of the injured, including the teenager, are in a critical condition.

Police initially put the injured toll at 20 but raised it after two more victims arrived at local hospitals.

The motive for the attack is not yet clear. Several weapons were said to have been found at the scene.

There are also reports of an attempted carjacking nearby but it is not clear if it was linked to the shooting.
