NORTHERN LIBERTIES (WPVI) -- A New Jersey man charged in a shooting outside a gentleman's club last week has been extradited to Philadelphia.

Authorities say someone fired two shots March 27 at a woman getting into her truck in the parking lot of Delilah's Den in Northern Liberties, hitting her vehicle. She ran inside and wasn't harmed.

Police said surveillance footage showed a man trying to get to the club's roof earlier. His vehicle was traced to New Jersey, where Gloucester Township police had arrested 29-year-old Lawrence Mitchell of Laurel Springs the day after shooting after they found him in possession of marijuana, a rifle scope, and magazine.

He has been extradited to Philadelphia on charges including attempted murder and aggravated assault. The Defender Association of Philadelphia, listed as representing him, didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.
