Authorities in Paterson corrected erroneous reports floating around that four people had been shot one night last week. It was only one, they said.

The 23-year-old victim was wounded at one of the city's most notorious corners -- Governor and Carroll streets, outside the Carroll Street Apartments -- shortly after 5 p.m. last Thursday, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes and Paterson Police Chief Ibrahim Baycora said in a joint announcement.

She arrived at St. Joseph's University Medical Center in a private vehicle and was expected to survive her injuries, the city police Cease Fire Unit wrote in a post.

Reports "falsely circulated on social media" claimed that three other people were struck, as well -- but that was wrong, the unit added.

No one would say whether any suspects had been arrested or identified.
