Passaic Backyard Shooting Injuries 5, including 4-year-old – NBC New York

New Jersey officials say two gunmen opened fire at a backyard rally in Passaic, in which four adults and a young child were injured after midnight.

County prosecutors say police responded to a home near Lafayette Avenue and Howe Avenue at 12:55 p.m. Sunday for reports of a shooting.

Responding officers found four victims in the area, all with nonfatal gunshot wounds, prosecutors say. A 4-year-old child suffered a gunshot wound, as well as a 21-year-old woman, a 25-year-old woman and a 29-year-old man.

The victims are residents of Passaic and Newark, according to a release Sunday afternoon. They were all transported to a hospital in Paterson for treatment.

Prosecutors say a fifth victim was discovered by police a short time later. The 21-year-old Passaic man suffered a scrape and refused medical treatment.

A motive for the shooting was not immediately known. The investigation into the shooting is still ongoing.
