A 21-year-old Bloomingdale man was wounded in an overnight drive-by shooting in Paterson, authorities said.

The victim was parked in the area of 21st Avenue and Madison Avenue when a passenger in a passing car opened fire shortly before 3:30 a.m. Friday, they said.

The victim was taken to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center with a nonfatal gunshot wound, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes and Paterson Police Chief Ibrahim Baycora said in a joint announcement.

Anyone who witnessed the shooting or has information that can help identify the vehicle or those responsible is asked to contact the prosecutor’s office tips line at 1-877-370-PCPO or tips@passaiccountynj.org or the Paterson Police Ceasefire Unit at (973) 321-1342
