IMG_6927In a Halloween weekend filled with real-life horrors, gunfire erupted in parts of the city and six people were sent to the hospital with bullet wounds, The Jersey Journal reports. But in virtually every case, the shooting victims were uncooperative with officers or came down with sudden amnesia, according to the authorities.

A 22-year-old man walked into Jersey City Medical Center–Barnabas Health shortly before midnight Friday seeking treatment for a graze wound to his face. The man, who was uncooperative with police, told officers he had been shot at Union Street and Ocean Avenue but police could not find the crime scene.

Then at 2:30 a.m. Saturday, a 36-year-old Newark man was shot in his right leg on Martin Luther King Drive near Warner Avenue. After being shot, he flagged down a car on MLK near Orient Avenue and the driver contacted police, city spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said.

The Newark man was taken by ambulance to the Medical Center but he could not provide information to police as to what led to the incident and could not tell officers the specific location where he was shot. Police were not able to locate a crime scene, Morrill said.

Then shortly after 11 p.m. Saturday, a 27-year-old Virginia Avenue man was shot in the buttocks and left ankle at MLK and Kearney Avenue and he fled the immediate scene but was located and then rushed by ambulance to the Medical Center.

In the same incident at MLK and Kearney, a 24-year-old Clerk Street man was grazed on the left calf and he was located three blocks away by police and also taken by ambulance to the Medical Center, Morrill said.

At about 12:30 a.m. Sunday, a 39-year-old Claremont Avenue man sitting in his nephew’s car parked at Pollock and Mallory avenues was shot in his right shoulder and right ear, Morrill said.

The nephew drove his uncle to the Medical Center. The 39-year-old was uncooperative and refused to provide police with further information about the incident, Morrill said.

Finally, around 1 a.m. Sunday, a 23-year-old Union Street man was shot in his right knee and right ankle in the area of Martin Luther King Drive and Claremont AvenueHe continued walking three blocks to Bostwick Avenue and MLK where he was found by police and taken by ambulance to the Medical Center. Police again, were unable to locate a crime scene, Morrill said.

Anyone with information on any of these shootings is asked to call the Jersey City police tip line at (201) 547 – JAIL.
