PATERSON, NJ - Police have arrested Benjamin Jackson, 23, of Paterson in connection with the Oct. 4 shooting of a 33-year-old city man on Main and Goshen streets.

According to Lt. Patrick Murray, Jackson was arrested Tuesday morning for the shooting, which left the victim with a gunshot wound in his buttocks. Jackson has been charged with attempted murder and other weapons offenses and is being held in Passaic County Jail.
