3 people hurt in back-to-back Paterson shootings Sunday night


Three men were wounded in back-to-back shootings in Paterson late Sunday night, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

Police said the three victims — 26, 23, and 19 – arrived at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center for treatment.

The 19-year-old and the 23-year-old men were wounded in a shooting on Butler Street and 6th Avenue at around 10:35 p.m. Both victims arrived at the hospital for treatment. Their injuries are non-fatal.

Five minutes later, a mile and half away, in the corner of 16th Avenue and Rosa Parks Boulevard, the 26-year-old man was struck by gunfire. He arrived at the hospital seeking treatment for a non-fatal gunshot wound.

Police responded to 16th Avenue and Rosa Parks Boulevard at around 10:40 p.m., but could not locate a victim. They were later advised the victim arrived at the hospital for treatment.

Earlier on Sunday, 22-year-old Byron Brooks was killed outside 189 Hamilton Avenue. He was struck by gunfire at around 3:48 a.m. and died at the hospital less than an hour later, authorities said.

Both non-fatal shootings are under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call the Paterson Police Ceasefire Unit at 973-321-1342.

      you can discuss the safety of law abiding residents with the mayor.But as far as the crime crises,talk to the garbage,inept parents who shouldn't even have kids. Normal, properly raised children have compassion,morals,values. They are not allowed out in the streets to mingle with drug dealers and gangs. Education is the primary importance.It all starts in the home.
