The police arrested and charged two brothers with attempted murder on Friday for their alleged role in a drive-by shooting on Hamilton Avenue, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

Johan Lake-Rodriguez, 28, Jerry Lake-Rodriguez, 27, both of Paterson, have been charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, and unlawful possession of a handgun, authorities said.

Police said the brothers shot a 26-year-old city man in a drive-by shooting on Hamilton Avenue on Thursday. Johan (pictured, left) fired multiple gunshots at the victim from a moving vehicle driven by his brother Jerry (pictured, right) at around 4:34 p.m., authorities said.

Both were arrested at around 11:15 a.m. on Friday in the area of 10th Avenue, police said. The brothers are exposed to 10-20 years in state prison solely on the attempted murder charge, authorities said.

Prosecutors have filed a motion for pretrial detention.
