PATERSON, NJ - Three city residents, two females and one male, were wounded in an apparent drive-by shooting in the city's 4th Ward on Tuesday evening.

The vehicle then fled down Putnam Street toward River Street.

A 32-year-old woman had gunshots wounds to both of her legs, a 24-year-old woman was grazed in the buttocks with a bullet and a 25-year-old male was wounded in the foot. All three victims were treated and released.
