    Gregory said the shooting occurred at about 1:40 a.m. Sunday. Officers responding to a report of shots fired arrived at the residence to find 24-year-old Nigee Paige with a gunshot wound to his torso. He was later pronounced dead at Jersey City Medical Center.

    Police believe Paige was involved in a physical altercation with his girlfriend in the hallway of the residence when the 17-year-old ran downstairs and shot Paige.
