Drive-by shooting in Paterson hurts three people


Three people were wounded in a drive-by shooting on Rosa Parks Boulevard late Saturday afternoon, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

Police said the three men, 30, 24, and 27, all of Paterson, were struck by gunfire at around 4:50 p.m. on Rosa Parks Boulevard and Keen Street.

The three victims arrived at Saint Joseph’s University Medical Center by private vehicles seeking treatment for non-fatal gunshot wounds.

Police believe the victims were at the intersection when a dark colored vehicle drove into the area and fired shots.

Authorities continue to investigate the incident. Anyone with information is asked to call the Paterson Police Ceasefire Unit at 973-321-1342.

    This is normal to see in corrupt cities that are normally run by Democrats. They can stop crime if they wanted to but they won’t do it cause crime brings in money from the state and federal government.

    Same thing is happening in NYC and all other cities in America. The Police Departments are REFUSING to do their jobs. The Police are letting criminals/animals have shootouts on the streets. The Police are letting grandmothers get pushed onto subway tracks in NYC. It's absolutely disgusting the lack of respect the Police have for the citizens of this country. Don't think us taxpayers aren't noticing.
