The Passaic County Prosecutor's Office has launched an investigation into a shooting that killed a person in a section of Paterson during the overnight night. 

According to a preliminary investigation, Paterson Police responded to reports of shots fired in the 40's block of Main Street just before 11:50 p.m.

Several police officers arrived at the scene and found the victim suffering multiple gunshot wounds at that location.

Police taped off the area after they noticed about a half dozen shell casings at the scene.

According to authorities, the victim was pronounced dead a short time later.

The motive for the attack is under investigation and no other injuries have been reported.
