Jimmy Mercedes, 39, of Paterson, faces multiple charges including first-degree murder, second-degree unlawful possession of a weapon, second-degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and second-degree certain person not to possess a weapon.

The event unfolded when police were called to the scene at about 10:22 a.m. on May 5, following reports of a shooting.
