Two men were killed and four people were wounded when two gunmen opened fire into a car at a New Jersey street corner, police said.
Jersey City police found five men and a woman with gunshot wounds near the corner of Crescent Ave. and Brinkerhoff St. around 11 p.m. Friday.
Randolph Black, 25, was unconscious in the car with a gunshot wound to the chest, police said. Medics rushed him to Jersey City Medical Center, where he died a short time later.
Jason Crutcher, 26, was found sprawled out on the ground near the vehicle with gunshot wounds to his chest, arms and legs. He was also taken to Jersey City Medical Center, but could not be saved, cops said.
Three other men — ages 25, 26 and 35 — and a 20-year-old woman sprinted out of the car. The surviving men were mostly hit in the arms and legs, cops said.
The woman, who was shot multiple times, ran into a nearby store. All were taken to nearby hospitals and were expected to survive, police said.
Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop said all six victims were sitting in the car when the two shooters walked up and opened fire. The suspects drove off in an SUV, going the wrong way down a one-way street, authorities said.
There have been no arrests.
Fulop on Saturday acknowledged that Jersey City is “in a fragile place with regards to an increase in gun violence.”
“None of this is acceptable to us,” Fulop said on Facebook. “As a city, we are committing more and more resources to get ahead of (the gun violence). We won’t let the progress we have made slip backwards.”
