A city man has been arrested for his alleged role in a shooting on North Main Street nine months ago, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

Yhamere F. Mayo, 28-year-old, was arrested in the area of Presidential Boulevard on Friday, authorities said. He is charged with two counts of attempted murder, unlawful possession of a handgun, and two counts of possession of a handgun for an unlawful purpose.

Authorities said the charges against Mayo spring from the January 13, 2019 shooting on North Main Street.

A 28-year-old man suffered a non-fatal gunshot wound and a 32-year-old man was shot at but not injured.

Mayo could face a maximum of 40 years in prison on the two attempted murder counts alone, authorities said.

Prosecutors will file a motion for pretrial detention when Mayo appears before a judge.
