In a bizarre incident yesterday afternoon (Monday), a woman was walking near Rigley’s Park not far from Lawrence Place, when a black male fired multiple rounds of bullets in her direction.
The woman was not hit by any of the bullets. After firing the shots, the man fled on foot. None of the bystanders were hit by the gunman’s bullets. This is speculated to be a message sent to either the woman or someone else possibly over some sort of a gang rivalry or drug related territorial control.
Paterson Police are investigating the incident.
