JERSEY CITY -- A 19-year-old man was injured in one of three shootings reported in less than 24 hours this weekend, officials said.

Two of the shootings occurred in broad daylight.

The first incident was reported at about 9:30 p.m. Friday in Curries Woods. No one was injured by the gunfire, but a home on New Heckman Drive was hit by a bullet, city spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said.

On Saturday afternoon, the 19-year-old was grazed in the head by a bullet on Neptune Avenue near Old Bergen Road at about 2 p.m. He was brought to Jersey City Medical Center for treatment and was "uncooperative" with police, she said.

About two and a half hours later, gunfire erupted in the Heights near New York Avenue and Franklin Street. Morrill said the shots fired stemmed from a "feud between two acquaintances."

No one was injured in the shooting, and no property damage was reported. An arrest warrant was issued for the alleged gunman, Morrill said.
