Holiday violence strikes Plainfield


Violence struck Plainfield overnight Sunday as we enter into the height of the Holiday period.

About 2:15 AM, I am told, a man was shot at least twice in the 700-block of East Front Street. The man was taken to RWJ and is expected to survive. Police are still trying to determine if the shooting was gang- or drug-related. No word on whether ShotSpotter identified the gunshots and/or their location.

Also overnight the same night, a man was stabbed in the 200-block of West Front Street. The victim apparently knew his attackers but is refusing to cooperate with police.

More as details emerge.

What impact did ShotSpotter have in this incident?

So, the guy who refused to cooperate should move out of Plainfield, leave the good citizens alone, and take his sleezy group of people he knows with him.

Can't change anything if you don't change anything.
