Three wounded in 10th Avenue shooting


A Belleville man and two city women were wounded by gunfire during the late evening hours of Tuesday near East 19th Street, according to the Paterson Police Department.

The first victim, 29, the second victim, 27, and the third victim, 24, were standing near the intersection of 10th Avenue and East 19th Street at around 11:05 p.m. on Tuesday when a gunman began firing.

“At this time it appears that all of the victims were standing in a group on 10 Avenue near East 19 Street when shots were fired by an unknown person, and the victims were struck at that time,” said Patrick Murray, head of the Ceasefire Unit.

Police responded to the shooting after receiving alerts of gunfire in the area only to find the Belleville man suffering from gunshot wound the arm and leg, Murray said. As officers were investigating the incident, St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center alerted police that two females had arrived with gunshot wounds.

The 27-year-old woman suffered graze wounds to the leg. The 24-year-old woman sustained graze wound to the chest and leg, according to police.

“Both female victim were treated and released,” Murray said. The 29-year-old is in stable condition, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Edgar Taylor or Detective Rolando Polio of the Ceasefire Unit at 973-321-1342.

    How about they need to stop hanging out on the corner, in front of liquor stores and in front of their houses and find better things to do. You want to hang out, stay in your house and hangout. There is plenty to do around the city of Paterson. Get a job, volunteer. Everyone always looking for handouts. Always excuses coming from our people. I have no sympathy because if you are 20 something years old you should be working or going to school and you wouldn't want to hangout on the corner. This generation doesn't value life! Get your life!!

      Fuck u, some people were put in the position as to where they are at the moment, nobody asked to hustle on corners jerk off, some people value life enough that they have to do that in order to serving from hunger, homeless lives and death, u wouldn't understand because u haven't been born with no spoon in your mouth so take your sliver spoon having ass to Clifton, Verona, Teaneck, or even fort lee if you don't want to see blk ppl trying to live , it just so happens some young black men are doing extra to mess the area up, im sure you have plenty of family members locked up and hanging on street corners. So stop downing your own kind, if you took your ass to school or work you wouldn't see them as holes

        The young men here have the opportunity to do better but too often CHOOSE to do what they think is the easiest thing. They like hanging out and don't want to work hard in school. So when they leave high school and have few economic options, they find that hanging out isn't as cool as they thought it would be. Plus the culture on the street fosters this gun violent behavior. They don't have to do that. They can do other things and start over. They CHOOSE to do what they do on the street. Let's stop making excuses for them and send the better message that doing better is well within their capabilities. The young kids around them see them and want to follow in their foot steps. That is why this nonsense continues.
