15-year-old hurt in second Sunday shooting in Paterson


A teenager was wounded in a shooting on 17th Avenue early Sunday afternoon, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

The victim, 15-year-old, was wounded in a shooting on 17th Avenue and East 30th Street at around 1:15 p.m.

Police arrived in the area to investigate report of a shooting. They located a crime scene, but no victim. After police secured the scene, a suspect vehicle drove through the intersection and fired several more rounds, police said.

A short time later, police were flagged down by the victim, who sustained a non-fatal gunshot wound. Police rushed the victim to Saint Joseph’s University Medical Center for treatment.

Earlier on Sunday, a 25-year-old man was wounded in a shooting on Park Avenue and Rosa Parks Boulevard.

      Good luck waiting on his response. In the meantime, I’ll fill you in..There’s Blood gang war amongst certain “sets”. All the feds have to simply do is unroll the RICO ACT.

        You can't roll out the Rico law here. Patersonian politicians will claim its racist

          Feds over-ride state any day…

      we need to ask the people that question. The mayor not the one doing the shooting. it's like taking your kids to school the teacher tries her best, but the parent don't help the kid do his homework. then blames the teacher for the kid failing.

    Maybe one of these posters should rat.

    And yet Patersonians will vote this mayor with his new Police chief right back in

    so the cops were there a car drove by and fired shots with the cops there and they couldn't catch the driver/car??? either that's bad reporting or bad policing
