UPDATE: Passaic County sheriff's officers captured a 22-year-old ex-con who police said fired a shot into another driver's door during a road-rage incident Thursday afternoon on westbound Route 46 in Elmwood Park.
They also recovered the 9mm handgun that was used, Police Chief Michael Foligno told Daily Voice.
A judge ordered that Joseph Ortiz of Paterson remain held in the Bergen County Jail on first-degree attempted murder, aggravated assault and various weapons charges -- including being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
Passaic County sheriff's officers found Ortiz on Canal Street in Paterson following the shooting just before 3 p.m. near the intersection of the highway and Boulevard, Foligno said.
Ortiz got into an argument with another driver "and fired at least one round at the victim, striking the driver's side door of his vehicle," the chief said.
The other driver wasn't injured, he said.
The Bergen County Sheriff's Bureau of Criminal Identification was summoned to process evidence.
"Special thanks to the Passaic County Sheriff's Department, Bergen County Sheriff's Office and Bergen County Prosecutor's Office for their assistance," Foligno said.
