2 Shot in Separate Incidents in Paterson

Authorities in northern New Jersey say two men have been wounded in separate shootings in Paterson.

And while the shootings don't appear to be connected, police say they have not determined a motive for either one.
    
Both shootings apparently happened shortly before 4 a.m. Sunday.
 
The names of the victims have not been disclosed, and police would not provide specific details on either incident, including what types of weapons may have been used.
    
One man who was shot in the head on Kearney Street was in critical condition at St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center in Paterson, while the other victim was being treated there for a wound to his upper right leg.
