Officers responding to a shots-fired call Monday in the area of Highland and Hope avenues found evidence of a crime scene but no victim, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes and Acting Clifton Police Chief Thomas Rinaldi said in a joint release.
Surveillance cameras in the area helped them identify the shooter as Erik Aroche-Domingues, 25, they said.
Detectives arrested Aroche-Domingues on Tuesday and recovered a handgun, Valdes and Rinaldi said.
They charged him with weapons counts and with possessing a high-capacity magazine.
Aroche-Domingues was sent to the Passaic County Jail pending a court hearing.
