PATERSON, NJ- A Paterson man was shot in the early hours of Saturday while working in a local food truck.

According to a report by the Passaic County Prosecutor's Office, Paterson Police were dispatched to the area of Peach and Plum Street at approximately 3:42 a.m. after calls of shots fired. Upon their arrival officers were unable to find a crime scene but were advised a short time later that the 28-year-old victim had arrived at St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center for treatment of a non-fatal gunshot wound.

Based on the initial investigation, two masked men approached the victim and demanded money, shooting him once before fleeing the scene when he refused.

Anyone with further information can contact the Passaic County Prosecutor's Office at 1-877-370-PCPO or at tips@passaiccountynj.org, or can call the Paterson Police Department Ceasefire Unit at 973-321-1342.
