PATERSON - A 34-year-old city man was fatally shot in Paterson's 4th Ward Sunday morning, marking the city's 21st homicide of the year, according to law enforcement officials.

The fatal shooting happened just before 9 a.m. on Harrison Street, near Jelsma Place, officials said. Authorities have not yet released the victim's name or any details of the incident.

November was a particularly peaceful month in the city, with just three shootings. Paterson had gone 35 days without a killing prior to Sunday's incident, an unusual lull after the city endured back-to-back years with record-setting numbers of homicides - 27 in 2020 and 29 in 2021.
