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 tips@passaiccountynj.org or call the Paterson Police Ceasefire Unit at (973) 321-1342 .
