Rudy-Mena

A city man has been arrested and charged with attempted murder for his alleged role in a broad daylight shooting on Park Avenue.

Rudy Mena, 25-year-old, is also charged with unlawful possession of a handgun, and possession of a handgun for an unlawful purpose. He was arrested on Main Street on Tuesday, authorities said.

Charges against Mena spring from the late Monday afternoon shooting on Park Avenue and Carroll Street. Initially, police received reports the shooting had occurred on Broadway and East 26th Street.

A 21-year-old Paterson man was struck by gunfire. His injuries were non-fatal.

Mena could face 10-20 years in state prison if convicted on the attempted murder charge. Prosecutors will file a motion for pretrial detention.
