Gunfire continued in Paterson when separate shootings sent three city residents to the hospital.
That made nine people shot since last Sunday, one of whom was killed.
A 27-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman were shot – one in the arm, the other in the foot -- near the corner 10th Avenue and East 28th Street shortly after 8 p.m. Friday, authorities said.
An ambulance brought one to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center and the ither arrived in a private vehicle, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes and Paterson Police Chief Ibrahim Baycora said Saturday.
Eight hours later, a 27-year-old man showed up at St. Joe’s with a gunshot wound he apparently received near the corner of Essex and Beach streets, they said.
None of the injuries were considered life-threatening, Valdes and Baycora said.
They didn’t say whether anyone has been charged or identified in the shootings.
