The Passaic County Prosecutor's Office are looking into the motive behind a shooting that injured three victims in Paterson Thursday night. 

Police said at approximately 8 p.m., gunfire rang out in the vicinity of 130 East 21st Street. 

When officers arrived, they found the victim suffering a non-life threatening gunshot wound in his leg. 

While EMS units were preparing the victim to transport to the hospital, officials at St. Joseph's Medical Center notified police that two gunshot victims arrived in the emergency department. 

Police say both victims are believed to have suffered their injuries at the East 21st Street shooting scene. 

The motive for the attack is under investigation and no suspects have been arrested at this time.
