PATERSON - Police are searching for a suspect who shot and killed a 22-year-old man early Sunday morning in Paterson.

Police say the 22-year-old was shot outside a home on 14th Avenue where a house party was being held. Responding officers attempted CPR on the man, but were not able to revive him.

A witness told News 12 that surveillance video taken from a neighbor’s security system shows three men walking along the sidewalk on 14th Avenue toward the victim. After the shooting, the shooter can be seen running away from the scene. Police are using the video to identify the suspect.

The neighbor, who wishes to remain anonymous, says parties in the area are an ongoing problem. She says police rarely respond to shut down parties after complaints. A second neighbor says she called police at 5 a.m. to warn that things were getting out of hand. Police did not respond until after the shooting at around 5:30 a.m.

Police have not released the victim’s identity or a motive for the shooting.
