August 23, 2019

PATERSON, N.J. (AP) — A shooting outside a northern New Jersey apartment building has left one man dead and two others wounded.

The shooting on Presidential Boulevard in Paterson occurred around 7 p.m. Thursday.

City police found the three men when they responded to reports of shots fired. All three were taken to a hospital, but 25-year-old Xavier McCray was pronounced dead there a short time later.

A 19-year-old Paterson man was treated for undisclosed injuries and was later released. But a 38-year-old Jersey City man remained hospitalized Friday in stable condition.

A motive for the shooting remains under investigation.

The names of the two wounded men and further details on the shooting were not disclosed.
