Hours after an ex-con surrendered to police for shooting an innocent bystander from Clifton at a Paterson bodega, shots were fired a block away.

Although responding officers didn’t find a victim, they did collect enough evidence to arrest a 22-year-old ex-con who they said pulled the trigger at Temple and North 5th streets around 7 p.m. Wednesday.

Rajaheem Alston of Paterson was charged with four counts of aggravated assault and various weapons offenses, including being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, Police Director Jerry Speziale said.

He was sent to the Passaic County Jail pending a detention hearing, Speziale said.
