74-year-old woman among 3 shooters who used same gun to kill man inside laundromat, authorities allege The daylight gunfire inside a Trenton laundromat that killed a young man and wounded another was carried out by three shooters ranging in age from 15 to 74 who all used the same handgun, one after the other, prosecutors alleged Tuesday. The incident began after a group of people beat up a 37-year-old man who later turned into a suspect, and who took the gun from the woman who started off the retaliatory gunfire: a 74-year-old woman known in Trenton as “Mama Dean."

It seems a little late for that. The court documents were just filed on Tuesday. The film has already been shown at the Venice and Toronto film festivals, and it's scheduled to launch around the world on Friday.
