On Monday at about 11:35 a.m., West New York police responded to the Wireless Express, also known as the T-Mobile store, located at 5010 Bergenline Ave., on a report of an armed robbery.

The store owner told police the robber occurred about 20 minutes ago and refused medical attention. Further information on the incident was redacted since it remains an ongoing investigation.

On the same day at roughly 4:07 p.m., the West New York PD received a call about a shots fired incident at the intersection of 62nd Street and Park Avenue.

The victim, who was not identified, was shot in the leg and received treatment on the scene before being transported to the Jersey City Medical Center. A 9 millimeter Luger bullet shell casing was recovered on the scene, as was a knife with a light pink handle.

Finally, on Tuesday at approximately 7:57 a.m. authorities responded to 139 66th St. and found a man dead on arrival outside the home. No further information on the incident was available.

The CAD reports were obtained through an Open Public Records Act (OPRA) request.
