Trenton has broken its record for most homicides in a year.
 
Authorities say 26-year-old city resident Brandon Nance was shot and killed Thursday afternoon as he tried to run away from two men who were chasing him. He became the 32nd person killed in Trenton this year, breaking the record set in 2005.

  No arrests have been made in the shooting. Authorities have not said why the men were chasing after Nance, and bystanders said they were firing at him with handguns as they ran.
 
Witnesses reported hearing at least five shots before Nance collapsed outside a landmark city bakery. He was taken to the hospital, where he died a short time later.
