Man Wounded in Shooting Saturday Morning


PATERSON, NJ - A passenger in a vehicle was shot in the shoulder during a dispute Saturday morning at the intersection of 10th Avenue and E. 22nd Street.

The victim, a 23-year-old male, was riding with a male companion when they stopped to speak with two females on the street at around 2:45 a.m., according to Lt. Patrick Murray of the Paterson Police Ceasefire Unit.

"While speaking with the females, two males approached and the victim and his friend got into a verbal argument with those males," Murray said. "During the argument, one of the males produced a handgun and began firing at the passenger side of the vehicle the victim was seated in. As the victim’s friend pulled off, the victim realized he had been struck in the shoulder and was subsequently dropped off at his residence in North Bergen. He was then transported by family members to the hospital."
