The 26-year-old man from Trenton shot to death on Monday has been identified, authorities said.

Derek Colley was shot multiple times about 4:30 p.m. on the 200 block of Spring Street, according to the Mercer County Prosecutor's Office.

No arrests have been made and the homicide remains under investigation, Casey DeBlasio, a spokeswoman for the prosecutor, said.

It marks the 30th homicide in the capital city this year, nearly double the total -- 16-- all of last year, according to DeBlasio.
