Homicide

Police: Stray bullet kills girl, 12, riding scooter through northern New Jersey neighborhood

Authorities say a 12-year-old girl riding a scooter in a northern New Jersey neighborhood was shot and killed by a stray bullet.

Police believe the shooter was aiming at someone else when Genesis Rincon was struck at about 8:40 p.m. Saturday in Paterson. Two other children who were with her weren't injured.

Authorities say Rincon had left a family gathering to go to a nearby store with another girl and a boy, but the store was closed so they headed back to the event. They were taking turns riding the scooter and were about a block away from the gathering when multiple shots rang out.

Authorities say the shooting may be connected to one that happened in the same area early Saturday. In that shooting, a 26-year-old man was wounded in the leg.
