TRENTON, N.J. (AP) – Trenton has tied its record for most homicides in a year.

Authorities say 26-year-old city resident Jafar Lewis was shot and killed Friday night during a confrontation on a city street, making him the 31st person killed in Trenton this year. That ties the record set in 2005.

It’s not yet clear what sparked the dispute that led to Lewis’ death.

Authorities say he was in a car with some other people and the assailant’s vehicle was alongside that car when the dispute got heated. Both men then exited their vehicles, and the shooting occurred around 9:20 p.m. on Middle Rose Street.

Lewis was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead early Saturday. The assailant fled the scene and remained at large Saturday.
