Guzman was shot during the robbery, while his friend was able to get away, police said. Police officers found Guzman on the street, between two parked cars. He was taken to St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center where efforts to revive him failed, police said.

It was Paterson's 16th murder of the year. Also, Sunday was the third consecutive day on which someone was shot in Paterson. On Friday, a man was wounded by four bullets while walking to work in the 4th Ward and on Saturday three people were wounded in a 1st Ward shooting.

Authorities would not say how many times Guzman was shot or where the bullets struck him in order not to compromise their investigation.

Police are asking anyone with information on the homicide to contact Det. Sgt. Ivette Otero or Det. Todd Pearl of the Paterson Police Major Crimes Unit at 973-321-1120.
