VIDEO: A firefighter in Trenton, New Jersey was wounded by a stray bullet while working out at the firehouse on Tuesday night, officials said. It happened around 8:30 p.m. at Trenton Fire Company 1: Engine 1 on the 400 block of Calhoun Street. Two bullets pierced the back of the firehouse. Police say one bullet struck the firefighter who was in the weight room. A second bullet went through the wall and into the kitchen, but did not hit anyone. Authorities say the firefighter was taken to the hospital with a graze wound. "It's concerning because my firefighters actually have to go to calls with bulletproof vests on. Now to have to be concerned with them to be possibly shot at the firehouse -- this is one of those rare incidents that happen, but this is a major concern," said Ken Douglas, the director of the Trenton Fire Department.
