TRENTON, New Jersey >> A 19-year-old city man was arrested in connection with the shooting of a Three Year Old city toddler.
On Friday Trenton Police Lt. Stephen Varn said that Goss turned himself in to police in connection with the shooting. Varn said the toddler was walking with his father in the area the 100 block of Exton Avenue around 8:00 p.m. when they were approached by several people and shots were fired. According to Varn, the shooting appears to be some kind of neighborhood dispute. The toddler suffered a through and through gunshot wound and was admitted to Capital Health Regional Medical Center for treatment. He is listed in stable condition.
Varn said that the Shooting Response Team was tasked with the investigation and as a result a warrant was issued for Tah’von Goss. The 19-year-old turned himself in at Trenton Police Headquarters around 11 a.m. on Friday. Goss is no stranger to arrests, however.
