A person was struck by gunfire today in Bergen-Lafayette.

According to the report, the shooting occurred at approximately 5:30 p.m. in the vicinity of Virginia Ave. and Martin Luther King Drive.

The injuries were said to be non-life-threatening.

The shooting continues a surge in gun violence both locally and in cities across the country.

The extent of any increase in crime in Jersey City is unknown.

Without explanation, the Fulop administration stopped publishing monthly CompStat data in June of 2019.

New York City residents, in contrast, have access to fresh crime data, including shootings, from weekly CompStat reports posted on the city’s website.
