Brielle Restaurant Owner Indicted
A Jersey Shore restaurant owner accused of shooting his general manager in the parking lot of his business last year has been indicted on attempted murder and weapons charges.
Authorities haven’t said what spurred the June 18 shooting at the Sand Bar restaurant in Brielle. Cataldo fled the scene and was arrested later that day at his home after an eight-hour stand-off.
Cataldo remains jailed on $3.5 million bail. He faces several decades in prison if he’s convicted.
The female shooting victim underwent surgery for a gunshot wound to her back and injuries to her lungs and eyes.
