Paramus police are searching for two men who allegedly fled from a shooting that left one man with a bullet wound to the chest Wednesday night.
According to Paramus Police Chief Kenneth Ehrenberg, 33-year-old Paramus resident Ilkay Karayel was walking along Pascack Road near Oradell Avenue at around 10 p.m. when two men on motorcycles confronted him. One of the men pulled out a handgun and fired several shots, striking Karayel once in the chest, Ehrenberg said.
The suspects reportedly fled on the bike southbound on Pascack Road. Karayel ran home and hitched a ride to Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, where he is listed in stable condition, according to Ehrenberg.
Paramus detectives searched the area near Mariner's Bank and found multiple shell casings.
Anyone with information regarding the shooting is asked to contact Paramus police at 201-262-3400 ext. 553.
