The Hudson County Prosecutor's Office Homicide Unit and the Bayonne Police Department are probing the fatal shooting of a man.
The shooting happened around 4:30 a.m. in the area of Avenue A and West 21st Street.
"It happened literally right here,” says Saavgel Victoria. “I live right here so it's kind of shocking."
Saavgel was one of the few neighbors awake this morning to hear the gunshots. News 12 is hearing the victim may have been shot while he was in his car next to a female passenger who was not shot.
"It happened right after the shots - the shots, there were like 10 times and I heard her screaming,” says Victoria.
Victoria has been living in the Avenue A neighborhood for about two years, saying neighbors typically keep to themselves.
"This is a very safe neighborhood, I like it,” says Victoria. “I don't hear about shootings in this neighborhood, not a lot. Now looking at where it happened, I was like. I'm struck. I'm surprised."
