POINT PLEASANT, N.J. (AP) — A 62-year-old man suspected of shooting a woman outside a New Jersey shore restaurant was taken into custody without incident after holding police at bay for several hours.
Louis Cataldo of Point Pleasant was arrested at his home around 1 p.m. Tuesday and charged with attempted murder and weapons offenses. He’s being held on $1.5 million bail.
