A 16-year-old Paterson boy was wounded when shooting erupted outside a city school Sunday night, authorities said.
The victim was taken to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in a private vehicle after he was struck while walking near the No. 10 school on Mercer Street and Keen Street before 9:30 p.m., they said.
A shot spotter recorded 13 rounds – with two vehicles struck -- after what they Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes and Paterson Police Chief Ibrahim Baycora described as “multiple actors” opened fire.
His wound wasn’t considered life-threatening, they said in a joint announcement.
This came after an out-of-state man in a passing car was struck by stray gunfire on another city street over the weekend. READ MORE....
Valdes and Baycora didn’t say whether any suspects had been arrested or identified or whether any weapons had been recovered in the wounding of the 16-year-old boy shooting.
