Police found the first victim laying on the ground in front of a house on E. 32nd Street near 11th Avenue at about 12:30 am Wednesday after they responded to reports of multiple gunshots in the area, according to a press release issued by the Paterson Police Department. The man, identified as an African-American in his mid- to late-20s, did not have any identification on him, police said.
