Five people were shot on a Paterson street Wednesday night including a 15-year-old girl fatally shot in the head Thursday night.
Shots were fired around 10:20 p.m. in the area of Madison Street and Essex Street in the Sandy Hill section of Paterson, according to Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes. Officers found the teen, who was from North Haledon, lying on Essex Street with a gunshot wound to the head. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Four additional victims — a 29-year-old male from Paterson, a 26-year-old male from Paterson, a 32-year-old male from Paterson, and a 21-year-old male from Paterson — also suffered non-life-threatening gunshot wounds, and were treated at St. Joseph’s University Medical Center.
Valdes did not disclose the identity of anyone who was shot or the circumstances of the crash.
The shooting is the 9th fatal shooting in Paterson this year, according to a NorthJersey.com count.
Every NJ city and town's municipal tax bill, ranked
A little less than 30 cents of every $1 in property taxes charged in New Jersey support municipal services provided by cities, towns, townships, boroughs and villages. Statewide, the average municipal-only tax bill in 2021 was $2,725, but that varied widely from more than $13,000 in Tavistock to nothing in three townships. In addition to $9.22 billion in municipal purpose taxes, special taxing districts that in some places provide municipal services such as fire protection, garbage collection or economic development levied $323.8 million in 2021.
