A city man has been arrested and charged with attempted murder for his alleged role in a shooting on 9th Avenue, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

Roshane James, 21-year-old, was arrested on Friday. He was also charged with unlawful possession of a handgun, and possession of a handgun for an unlawful purpose.

Charges against James spring from a January 29 shooting on 9th and Madison avenues. A 31-year-old man was found shot at the location. Authorities said James was a participant in the incident.

James faces a maximum of 20 years in state prison on the attempted murder charge alone, authorities said.
