Paterson police avoided a tragedy when they subdued a wanted city man who tried to pull a gun on them as they moved in to arrest him for a shooting, authorities said.

Police began searching for Yusef M. Page, 18, shortly after the 24-year-old victim from Hillside was taken to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center at 1:20 p.m. Saturday with a non-fatal wound from a shooting on Broadway.

When police spotted Page on Hamilton Avenue a short time later, he “attempted to pull a firearm from his waistband,” Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes and Paterson Police Chief Troy Oswald said in a joint release.

“After a struggle, Page was detained and arrested,” they said.

He remained held Sunday in the Passaic County, charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, resisting arrest and weapons offenses – including possession of a defaced firearm.
