A girl from North Haledon, who was shot in the head, died late Wednesday evening. Four other people were injured in the same shooting on Essex Street in Paterson, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

The girl, 15-year-old, was found lying in front of 36 Essex Street at around 10:20 p.m. She had sustained a gunshot wound to the head and was dead at the scene.

Four Paterson men — 29, 26, 32, and 21 — were also shot in the incident. They sustained non-life-threatening gunshot wounds and are receiving treatment at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center.

Police continue to investigate the incident. Anyone with information is asked to call the Paterson Police Detective Bureau at 973-321-1120.

      maybe one on the men was her dad?

      • Mike Corleone

        Yeah. I read the story on nj dot com
        She was from dancing school. She had family in the area.
        She was coming out of a bodega. Wrong place at the wrong time.
        They'll get caught.
        I'm deleting my first comment.

    Mayor Andre Sayegh, who easily won re-election in a five-person mayoral race on Tuesday night, promised much the same for the next four years.

      That’s exactly why he won. All the other promised to get tuff on crime and that’s a big no no if you want to win in a city full of Democrats. He know how to play the game. Look at NYC and Chicago, they always elect someone to go with the flow and won’t disrupt a thing.

    With a name like that I truly doubt u a true American. U will never be a true American. First u don't know what and never will know what it is the be a true American. This country was founded, molded, and formed on Christianity, your religion conflicts dearly with Christianity. We are like water and oil. We and you don't mix. And like history shows your attempting to mix causes destruction, ultimately the end of man kind.
