Authorities investigating an August shooting in Paterson wound up charging both the accused gunman and another city man who they said was involved in an incident months earlier.
Ex-con Jetor Brown, 25, was charged with shooting a 19-year-old city man on Park Avenue on Aug. 24, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes and Paterson Police Chief Troy Oswald said in a joint announcement Wednesday.
Counts include aggravated assault and various weapons offenses, including being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
Authorities also charged him with having a gun in a June 12 incident that Valdes and Oswald didn’t explain.
Brown also was charged with escape and resisting arrest in connection with his arrest on Sunday – which also wasn’t explained.
Valdes and Oswald announced in the same release that another man, 19-year-old Jordany Santana, was arrested after the Aug. 24 shooting and charged along with Brown in the unexplained June 12 incident.
