Mother's Day Weekend Violence: Shooting, gunplay

Mother's Day weekend in Plainfield did not escape violence-free.

Sunday Saturday (sorry, brain not fully engaged) evening a Hispanic male was shot in the chest and hand in the 600-block of West 3rd Street. The victim was transported by ambulance to RWJ University Medical Center. No further word available as yet.

Friday evening, as I pulled out of my driveway at 10:30 PM to go pick up a pizza, I was passed by three Plainfield Police Division cars speeding westbound with sirens and lights.

Am told they were on the way to a shooting incident on Pond Place, and that at the same time other police officers were responding to reports of gunfire on Johnston Avenue.
