Man shot in the back in Jersey City, police say

JERSEY CITY -- A 27-year-old man sitting in a car was shot early Sunday morning, officials said. 

The shooting was reported at about 1:30 a.m. on Randolph Avenue, city spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said. 

The victim, an Orient Avenue resident, suffered a gunshot wound to his back and his injuries were not considered life threatening, Morrill said. Multiple sources said a child was in the car at the time of the shooting. 

Photos taken by Jersey Journal freelance photographer Joe Shine show a red car --which appears to have stopped on Communipaw Avenue after the shooting -- with multiple bullet holes. The back window was shattered in the gunfire. 

No one was arrested and the shooting remains under investigation.
