Jordan Perez, 26, of Jersey City, was charged yesterday with criminal attempted homicide, unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes, and certain persons not to possess a weapon, according to Police Det. Sgt. Jonathan Mecka.

Back on Saturday, December 19th, 2020, at approximately 12:45 a.m., Police Officers Frank Francolino and Leo Colon responded to 310 Jackson St., the Harrison Gardens, on a report of a disturbance.

When the officers arrived, they met with a man requesting an ambulance for a gunshot wound to his leg.

At that time, the victim was transported to a local hospital for the single gunshot wound to his leg, which was not considered life threatening.

Over the last three months, Det. Adam Colon took lead in this investigation and worked alongside other members of the Hoboken Police Department Investigations Bureau.

Their investigation led to identifying Perez as the shooter and arrest warrants were issued against him. Yesterday, Perez turned himself over to the Hoboken Police Department where he was processed.

Once the arrest process was complete, Perez was transported to the Hudson County Correctional Facility, authorities said.
