PATERSON, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a woman was shot when a fight broke out at a house party in Paterson.

But it’s still not clear if the 18-year-old city resident was involved in the fight or if she was the shooter’s intended target.

The shooting occurred around 12:40 a.m. Sunday inside a North 4th Street home. The woman was taken to a hospital and was listed in stable condition, but her name and further details on her injuries were not disclosed.

Authorities have not said how many people were at the party or how many were involved in the fight.

The shooting was the 20th reported in the city this year. That’s nearly the same number that had occurred by this time last year.
