Paterson: 18-year-old charged with attempted murder in Broadway shooting


A city man has been arrested and charged with attempted murder and weapon offenses for his alleged role in a shooting on Broadway.

Yusef M. Page, 18-year-old, was arrested and charged with first-degree attempted murder, second-degree unlawful possession of a handgun, possession of a handgun for an unlawful purpose, third-degree aggravated assault, resisting arrest, and fourth-degree possession of defaced firearm on Saturday.

Page allegedly shot and injured a 24-year-old Hillside man on Broadway between Summer and Lake streets in broad daylight on Saturday afternoon. The victim sustained a non-fatal gunshot wound.

Police located Page in the area of Hamilton Avenue after the incident.

Page tried to pull a firearm from his waistband, but was subdued following a struggle and placed in handcuffs.

Prosecutors will file a motion for pretrial detention when the case is heard by a Passaic County judge, authorities said.

    Blame for this should be put on government that doesnt have any control of the community so kids that dont know any better are acting like they are living in the wild west with a lawless city. Perhaps if police were given power and the tools to actually police then this wouldn't have happened.
