An elderly city man has been arrested for allegedly shooting a person on Lyon Street, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.
Clark J. Thomas, 82-year-old, is charged with attempted murder and weapons offenses, authorities said.
Thomas allegedly shot a 58-year-old man late Wednesday night. Police rushed the victim to Saint Joseph’s Regional Medical Center for treatment and arrested Thomas at the scene.
Thomas faces a maximum of 30 years in state prison. He is being held at the Passaic County Jail.
Prosecutors plan to file a motion for pretrial detention when he appears before a judge.
