One person was injured tonight in a Bergen-Lafayette shooting.
According to radio reports, at approximately 9:40 p.m. police responded to the vicinity of 641 Ocean Avenue on a report of shots fired.
A man was taken to Jersey City Medical Center with three gunshot wounds.
Two cars were struck by bullets.
The condition of the victim was not available.
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 cities’ 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.
