Three 14-year-olds shot in Paterson, prosecutor says


Three 14-year-olds were injured in a shooting on Hamilton Avenue on Monday night, according to information released by Passaic County prosecutor Camelia Valdes.

The three victims were struck by gunfire at about 8:44 p.m. on Hamilton Avenue and Summer Street.

Their injuries were non-fatal, said authorities.

Law enforcement officials do not believe the latest shooting is related to the killing of a 13-year-old last week.

The victims were taken to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center for treatment.

Authorities said the triple shooting remains under investigation. Anyone with information is being urged to contact the prosecutor’s office at 1-877-370-PCPO or [email protected] or call the Paterson Police Ceasefire Unit at 973-321-1342.

    This city needs a Guiliani style mayor. Remember NYC prior to Guiliani? In other words no Liberal Socialist Democrat can do the job. And yet taxes are through the roof.

      Not just Guilani, genrification that was the main cause for the drop and crime

        I was born and raised in NYC. I lived it. Guiliani was actually 100% the reason. If you weren't born and raised in NYC and lived during this era, you just wont get it.

    You have the sheriff officer working hard for one week and then they take off on a Monday.. this Paterson mayor is a joke and Paterson is a joke. Killings are never going to stop in Paterson. There’s a lot of stuff that still doesn’t make the paper I’m still waiting for that couple who got kill and Burn the house down the house was chained up so the fire department couldn’t come in

    Democrats are not for the people. I am sure many Democrats are good but just the overall mentality diminishes a community overall. By the way I am Hispanic and was a Democrat. Wake up minorites.

      You can say that again. They are too busy kissing up to Chairman John Currie and giving him $95,000 no show jobs in addition to the thousands of dollars in cash donations that he puts in his pockets.

    And why are so minor children out in the streets without an adult?I think parents should start getting locked up every time they are being neglectful or their kids under 18 commit a crime. That's what it will take for parents to finally realize what it means to ve a parent. It is not ok for kids to be unsupervised. What do you think happens when kids are out in the streets? I just don't get it. No responsibility, no morals, no ethics, either in parents or officials.

      Parenting these days is probably the reasoning for it. Coming from a family that never let me go outside, most parents should know better to not let their kids go out alone with friends late at night, especially in Paterson. Just too dangerous these days..
