HACKENSACK, New Jersey (WABC) -- Authorities have identified the person killed in a shooting near a barber shop in Bergen County.
28-year-old Vidal R. Nieves died after being struck by bullets near the intersection of Essex and Lehigh streets in Hackensack around 5 p.m. Saturday.
The victim was seen on camera walking to the barbershop when the gunman came across Essex Street and began firing.

"Happy kid, he has a lot of dreams ... he was sweet, honest, very friendly with the customers," the family friend said. "It's something that we didn't expect, very sad."
The friend says the victim's mother was broken up by the loss of her son.
A restaurant owner just a few doors down from the incident told Eyewitness News she heard gunshots and there was concern, but thankfully no one else was hurt.
