Eighteen-year-old Jose Rodriguez of North Plainfield also faces weapons charges stemming from Thursday afternoon’s shooting. He was arrested early Saturday at a Piscataway home, and it was not known if he has retained a lawyer. His bail had not been set as of Saturday afternoon.

Authorities say the wounded boy was not targeted in the shooting and was hit by a stray bullet as he walked with his mother. He remains hospitalized in critical but stable condition.

A motive for the shooting remains under investigation.
