The detectives from the Cease-Fire unit were conducting a special street operation on the Northside when a call came in at 10:50 pm about gunfire near the corner of N. 2ndStreet and Haledon Avenue, according to Sgt. Patrick Murray. Police said they also received information that a tan minivan with Pennsylvania plates may have been involved in the gunfire.

The detectives spotted a vehicle matching the description that had four men inside, Murray said. The police officers then found a handgun, which was later identified as a .45 caliber semi-automatic, on the rear floor of the van's passenger area and subsequently removed the four men from the vehicle. "During the course of the subsequent investigation, a second firearm, a .38 caliber revolver, was also recovered,'' Murray said.

Victor Torres, 36, of N. 2nd Street; Francisco Gomez, 34, of Morrissee Avenue in Haledon; and Eddie Dominick, 27, of Summer Street were arrested and charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of a defaced firearm, police said. Also arrested was Luis Medina, 35, of Marshall Street. He was charged unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of a stolen gun.

The detectives who participated in the arrests were Carlos Charon, Anthony Hyatt, Rolando Polio, Dave Tanis, and Rick Ferreira of the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

As of early Saturday morning, the four men were being detained in the Paterson police department's cell block awaiting an initial court appearance and bail decision, Murray said.

The next time I opened an egg carton at the store, there was an egg missing.
