Shaheem Jones and a 28-year-old man who also was struck in the 8 p.m. shooting at the shooting at the corner of Van Houten and Summer streets were taken to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center, where Jones died soon after, they said.
The other victim was in stable condition, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes and Paterson Police Chief Ibrahim Baycora said in a joint release.
They didn’t say whether they’d captured or identified any suspects.
Joining city police at the scene were detectives from Valdes’s office and forensic investigators from the Passaic County Sheriff's Office who collected evidence.
