Two men were charged with murder and a third with weapons counts in the shooting death of a 23-year-old Paterson man during a gunfight last month.

Tysheik J. Williams, 26, of West Milford, and Ashair Wilson, 22, of Paterson, were among several people who pulled out handguns and opened fire during the fight at 233 16th Avenue just after 7 p.m. Dec. 19, authorities said.

Yasmany Almodovar, 19, of Paterson, supplied one of the weapons, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes and Paterson Police Chief Troy Oswald said in a joint announcement Friday.

Leexandre Torres sustained several gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene, they said.

A second victim, a 24-year-old Paterson man, was wounded in the shooting and was treated at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center.

Williams and Wilson were charged with first-degree murder, two counts of attempted murder and several weapons offenses. They remained held Friday in the Passaic County Jail.

Almodovar, meanwhile, was being held in the Bergen County Jail.
