2 suspected shooters accused in killing of Paterson teen to remain in jail

Two teenagers accused in the murder of another Paterson teen appeared before a judge Wednesday and will remain behind bars for now.
The judge cited the "Wild West" nature of the shooting that took the life of 18-year-old honor student Robert Cuadra.
The shooting happened Jan. 19 around 6:30 p.m. at 130 Godwin Ave.
Police found Cuadra lying on the sidewalk with an apparent gunshot wound. Cuadra was transported to Saint Joseph's University Medical Center where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased.
Cuadra was outside his home helping his grandmother bring in the groceries. The teen was caught in the crossfire and was shot in the head.
His viewing was held on Thursday at a funeral home on Fifth Avenue in Paterson. Cuadra's funeral will be held on Friday.
Cuadra was an honor student at HARP Academy in Paterson, a school for those looking to focus on a career in health care. He also had a full scholarship waiting for him at Montclair State University.
A third teen is due in court next week.
