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.
