Authorities were looking for a four-door black truck that sped down Jefferson Street following the shooting at the corner of North Main Street just after midnight.

Witnesses said an automatic rifle was used.

All five victims were taken to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center.

The 25-year-old victim “succumbed to his wounds and died at the hospital,”

Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes and Paterson Police Chief Ibrahim Baycora said in a joint release.

The wounded were also all city men -- ages 19, 21, 22 and 26 – all of whom were in stable condition, authorities said.
