The caller reported hearing a possible gun shot and then saw a male victim bleeding from the leg enter a red vehicle and leave the area, Turner said.

East Orange General Hospital called Montclair Police Dispatch saying a shooting victim had come to the emergency room for treatment and the shooting happened in Montclair, police said.

Officers did not find victims, witnesses or spent shell casing at the scene.
