PASSAIC, N.J. (PIX11) — Police in Passaic, New Jersey opened fire on a suspect Wednesday, Mayor Hector Lora said.

Officers responded to calls about shots fired near the Passaic train station at Van Houten Avenue and Lackawanna Plaza around 6:30 p.m. The officers located the suspect, surrounded him, and fired multiple shots to subdue him. The suspect was treated at a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

Neighbors told PIX11 News that the suspect lives in the neighborhood. Mom Seryl Fiddle said her 13-year-old son spotted the suspect from their front window.

“He was wearing a winter coat with a hood and a backpack over his chest,” said Fiddle. “And my son said, ‘Mom, he’s holding a gun.‘ So he came to call me. I kind of didn’t believe him. But he’s like, ‘Mom, I’m telling you, he has a gun. Come see.’ So then I went to go look and see what he’s talking about. That’s when I called 911.” 

Lora said investigators were working to determine a motive. No other injuries were reported.
