JERSEY CITY -- Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio said on Monday that Altarik Perry, 19, of Bergen Avenue in Jersey City, was shot to death Saturday morning during a wild shooting near Woodlawn Avenue.
DeFazio said Perry had just left a party at a nearby home with a group of people around 1 a.m. when two men allegedly started firing approximately 20 shots at the victims.
DeFazio said a bullet struck Perry in the back of the head and he was killed immediately. DeFazio also said a 31-year-old man was suffered a serious leg injury after being shot. The man is currently being treated at the Jersey City Medical Center.
DeFazio said one bullet went through the living room of one nearby residence, almost hitting the person residing there.
"It was an extremely dangerous situation for innocent bystanders," DeFazio said.
DeFazio said 19 spent shell casings were traced to two semi-automatic pistols. He said the incident was clearly not a robbery and no motive has been established.
