A city man has been charged with attempted murder for his alleged role in a late September shooting on Pearl Street, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

Kirk Douglas, 39-year-old, was arrested in the area of 16th Avenue and Carroll Street on Saturday, police said. He is charged with first-degree attempted murder, second-degree unlawful possession of a handgun, possession of a handgun for unlawful purpose, and certain person not to have a firearm.

Detectives determined Douglas was the actor in a September 23, 2018 shooting on Pearl Street. A 24-year-old city man sustained a non-fatal gunshot wound in the incident.

Douglas faces 10-20 years in state prison for first-degree attempted murder, authorities said. He is scheduled to appear before a judge at the Passaic County Courthouse on Monday at 1:30 p.m.

Prosecutors will file a motion for pretrial detention.
