A man, woman, and boy were wounded in three separate overnight shootings in the city, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

The three non-fatal shootings happened in a four-hour span Friday night into Saturday morning, authorities said.

At 10:40 p.m., a 23-year-old man arrived at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center seeking treatment for non-fatal gunshot wounds.

Police have not yet located a crime scene.

At 1:17 a.m., a 33-year-old woman was shot during a robbery by assailants on Market Street and Memorial Drive.

Police said the victim sustained a non-fatal gunshot wound. She was taken by ambulance to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center for treatment.

The woman was a passenger in a vehicle when she was robbed by multiple unidentified suspects, authorities said.

At 3:05 a.m., a 17-year-old boy was shot on East 24th Street and 12th Avenue.

Police responded to report of a shooting in the area, but could not find a victim. A short time later, police received information a 17-year-old had arrived at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center seeking treatment for a non-fatal gunshot wound.

All three incidents remain under investigation, authorities said. Anyone with information is being asked to call the Paterson Police Ceasefire Unit at 973-321-1342.
