"He just does not get injuries, it's impossible to break him."

". "Look at my leg, all messed up", said Irvin Higginbotham.

One of the victims Irving Higginbotham told 6ABC-TV that he had been shot four times. According to authorities around 1,000 people were in the arena for the festival.

One person has been killed and at least 20 people were shot after a shooting broke out at an all-night cultural festival in Trenton, New Jersey.

"People were running to him, trying to see his face, to see if he's a family member or a friend", she said. Then he heard gunshots.

Fifteen of the individuals that were injured during the shooting had gunshot wounds.

And there were more people outside than in the warehouse, which wasn't playing any music, Mr Roberts explained.

Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri says multiple weapons were recovered, and it is believed that a "neighborhood beef" sparked the shooting.


Officials also called for tighter gun control and more outlets for children and teenagers in the summer.

Numerous 22 understood to be injured were treated for gunshot wounds, Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri said Sunday morning.

Moms Demand Action, a grassroots movement of Americans demanding reasonable solutions to address our nation's culture of gun violence, had a booth at the event, according to their Twitter page.

"All shootings, whether large or small, are a crisis", Trenton Mayor Eric Jackson said.

Last year, about 1,500 artists took part and the festival had about 30,000 visitors. Organisers posted the news on Facebook, adding: "We're very shocked".

Authorities would not say why the suspects chose the All Night Art Festival for their fight but did say that the incident remains under investigation. "Events that will bring the community together", Murphy said. "We put our heart and soul into this", said volunteer Paula Lepone. It began on Saturday afternoon and was due to run until Sunday afternoon, but has now been cancelled.

Officials say a carjacking occurred shortly after the mass shooting and are investigating whether or not it is related.
