PATERSON, N.J. -- UPDATE: Authorities arrested a Paterson resident who they said killed an innocent Garfield man with crossfire during a gunfight outside a city nightclub this past weekend.
Parker Sams, 22, was gunned down outside D’Classico Restaurant and Lounge on Ellison Street just before 2 a.m., authorities said.
Sams, a UPS worker, reportedly was shot in the crossfire of a gunfight while searching for his girlfriend.
He was pronounced dead a short time later at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Paterson.
Another victim was hospitalized after being struck, as well.
