A 15-year-old boy was the victim of a shooting Wednesday night in Paterson, the Passaic County prosecutor said in a press release Thursday.

According to the release, police officers responded around 10:40 p.m. Wednesday to a report of shots fired in the area of Carroll Street. A 15-year-old boy was found at the scene suffering from a single gunshot wound.
