A city man has been arrested and charged with attempted murder and weapons offenses for his alleged role in a shooting on 16th Avenue, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.
Raheem Beal, 29-year-old, was arrested on Wednesday. He is charged with first-degree attempted murder, unlawful possession of a weapon, second-degree unlawful possession of a handgun, possession of a handgun for an unlawful purpose, and certain persons not to have weapons.
Beal is accused of injuring a 46-year-old Paterson man on 16th Avenue and Carroll Street on Saturday, authorities said.
The victim sustained a non-fatal gunshot wound, police said.
Beal faces a maximum of 20 years in state prison if convicted on the attempted murder offense. Prosecutors will file a motion for pretrial detention to keep Beal in jail.
