PATERSON - Paterson police are searching for a suspect who violently ambushed and shot a man early Sunday morning.

The man was shot several times as he was getting into his car after leaving an all-night party at Al Safa Restaurant.

Residents living on Main Street in Paterson once thought of their area as the best part of the town. Many are now reconsidering that sentiment following the spike in violent crime the area has seen.

Other neighbors are also concerned about businesses leaving due to the frequency of violence.

The shooting victim is listed in critical condition.
