Cherry's Lounge Jersey City
Cherry's Lounge Jersey City

A man was apparently shot early this morning in Greenville.

A radio report indicated that at approximately 3 a.m. a man was shot in the vicinity of Cherry’s Lounge, which is located at 102 Martin Luther King Boulevard. The injuries were reported to be non-life-threatening.

The Jersey City Times asked Mayor Fulop’s spokeswoman for comment but has not received a response.

The extent of crime generally, and shootings in particular, in Jersey City is unknown. Without explanation, the Fulop administration stopped publishing monthly CompStat crime data in June of 2019.

New York City residents, by contrast, have access to fresh crime data, including shootings, from weekly CompStat reports posted on the city’s website. Residents of North Bergen and Newark also have access to weekly crime reports.

At an August 18 “town hall” meeting with Mayor Fulop claimed that he shares all crime data with the Jersey Journal on a daily basis. The Jersey City Times determined that the claim was false.
