Authorities didn’t say whether they believe a bullet that struck and critically injured a 38-year-old vehicle passenger in Paterson was intended for him or someone else.

Police found the wounded city resident at the corner of Straight and Harrison streets – more than a half-mile from the scene of the shooting at North 1st and East Main streets – shortly before 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

He was taken to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center, where he remained in critical condition, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia Valdes and Paterson Police Chief Ibrahim Baycora said Friday.

Both asked that anyone who witnessed or has information about the shooting contact the prosecutor’s tips line at 1-877-370-PCPO or tips@passaiccountynj.org or the Paterson Police Ceasefire Unit at (973) 321-1342
