A man from Englewood has been arrested and charged with attempted murder for allegedly shooting a Paterson man on North Straight Street, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

Vanden L. Carter, 29-year-old, was apprehended on Godwin Avenue in Paterson on Wednesday, authorities said. He is charged with first-degree attempted murder, unlawful possession of a handgun, second-degree unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a handgun for an unlawful purpose, and certain persons not to have weapons.

Detectives identified Carter as the actor in the September 15, 2018 shooting. He allegedly shot a 44-year-old city man.

The victim sustained a non-fatal gunshot wound, authorities said.

Carter faces a maximum of 20 years behind bars for attempted murder offense alone. Authorities said prosecutors will file a motion to detain him until trial.
