JERSEY CITY -- Four men were injured and three cars were damaged in shootings between Thursday and Friday nights, authorities said.

The first shooting was reported at the Booker T. Washington housing complex at about 9 p.m. on Thursday. No one was injured in the shooting, but a car parked on Bright Street was damaged, police said.

Early Friday morning, a 24-year-old man was shot in the big toe near Monticello and Belmont avenues. He was brought to Jersey City Medical Center by a "passing motorist" at about 1:30 a.m., police said.

A few hours later, a 42-year-old Wegman Parkway resident was critically injured in a shooting near Bidwell and Ocean avenues at about 5:30 a.m. The suspect approached the victim and shot him in the back and leg. The 42-year-old remains hospitalized in stable condition, authorities said.

That night, shots were fired near Martin Luther King Drive and Oak Street just after 8:30 p.m. Officers patrolling the Salem Lafayette housing complex were flagged down by witnesses who said two men shot at a man who was standing near the intersection, police said. No one was injured in the shooting.

Later that night at about 11 p.m. two men, ages 25 and 28, were shot on New Hope Lane near the Curries Woods housing complex, authorities said.

The 25-year-old victim, a Merritt Street resident, suffered a nonlife-threatening injury to his arm. The 28-year-old was shot in the thigh and buttocks and was brought to Jersey City Medical Center in a private car, police said.

In the same shooting, two cars were damaged during the gunfire, police said.

No one has been arrested in connection with any of the shootings and the shootings remain under investigation. ... ersey_city_shootings.html
