PATERSON, NJ - A 20-year-old Paterson woman is dead and three others were wounded in a multiple shooting in the 5th Ward early Saturday morning.

Two gunmen approached the area of Park Avenue and East 22nd St. by foot at around 2:30 a.m. and began firing multiple rounds, according to Captain Heriberto Rodriguez of the Paterson Police Major Crimes Unit. One woman who was struck in the abdomen with a bullet was pronounced dead later Saturday morning at St. Joseph's Medical Center.

Two other shooting victims, a 39-year-old Paterson woman who was shot in the upper chest, and a 48-year-old man from Plainfield who suffered wounds to his groin, right leg and right hand, are also at St. Joseph's Medical Center in stable, and serious but stable, conditions, respectively.

A fourth victim, a 21-year-old Paterson woman, was shot in the left hip, received treatment at St. Joseph's and was released.

"Officers located two female gunshot victims on Park Avenue just off of East 22 Street. A third female victim was located inside of a first-floor residence on East 22 Street. A fourth male victim was then located on Park Avenue near East 24th Street after he attempted to flee the area on foot," Rodriguez said. "It is not clear at this time if any of the victims were the target of the gunfire." 

Detectives were still canvassing the area Saturday afternoon for possible witnesses and any video footage that may have captured the incident. The investigation is being conducted by detectives from both the Major Crimes and Ceasefire units. Anyone with information is urged to contact detectives Richard Martinez or Todd Pearl at (973) 321-1120 or the Ceasefire Unit at (973) 321-1342. All calls will be kept confidential.
