A woman who was walking on Paterson Avenue with a group of friends became the victim of a drive by shooting Thursday morning when a car passing by fired shots at the group.
The woman, 18-year-old, heard the sound of gunshots, and realized she had been struck by a bullet. A relative took her to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center, where she is receiving treatment for the gunshot wound.
The incident occurred around 4 a.m. in the morning. Paterson Avenue is known as one of the most violence prone streets in the city’s Totowa section.
Paterson Police are investigating the incident.
