By rlsmetro on

The Passaic County Prosecutor's Office is looking for suspects wanted for firing over three dozen rounds of bullets that connected on two victims in Paterson overnight.  

It happened around 8:45 p.m. in the vicinity of 256 Crooks Avenue, just at the border of Clifton. 

A preliminary investigation indicated that at least two males arrived at the location and began exchanging multiple rounds using automatic rifles before fleeing the scene. 

When police arrived at the scene, they found over forty shell casings and property damage at that location. 

Two individuals suffered injuries during the shooting and their conditions have been reported as non-fatal. 

The suspects fled the scene and remained at large.
