Authorities Saturday morning confirmed two overnight shootings in Paterson, one of which involved two victims who got themselves to the hospital.
The first shooting, on North Straight Street at 1:20 a.m., involved a 44-year-old man whose injuries weren’t considered life-threatening. He was taken to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center.
Then, just before 6 a.m., city police responded to shots fired in the area of East 23rd Street and 12th Avenue.
They found evidence of a crime scene but no victim, authorities said.
A short time later, St. Joe’s notified them that two men – one 35, the other 37 – showed up at the emergency room with non-fatal gunshot wounds.
Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia Valdes asked that anyone who might have seen something or has information that could help the investigations contact her office’s tips line at 1-877-370-PCPO or firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Paterson Police Ceasefire Unit at (973) 321-1342.
