One of Paterson's most notorious street corners claimed another life Wednesday night during one of the deadliest years of violence in the Silk City in the past decade.

The victim this time was a 58-year-old woman who was shot dead in the chest near the corner of Van Houten and Summer streets shortly before 9:30 p.m., responders said.

Diane Jackson was pronounced dead at the scene moments later.

Five shots in all were fired, bystanders said.

It was unclear whether the shooter had been caught or a suspect identified.

A shooting occurred at the same corner just five nights earlier.

It's happened often at Van Houten and Summer.

A 26-year-old city man was shot and killed there on Sept. 15.

This makes 23 people killed by gunfire in the Silk City this year, of nearly 150 victims shot, in one of Paterson's deadliest years in nearly a decade.

Last month, a city woman who was eight months pregnant was shot and killed outside her home by her ex-boyfriend, authorities said.
