    went by

    Is it correct saying -

    He went by, just now.

    Yes, it sounds fine to me, if the meaning is: He passed by, just now.
    Is that the same meaning as your original sentence?

    Yes, it is the same meaning. But, I want to know if we can use the word "went" instead of "passed."

    Or would it sound better saying "He went by this way just now."

    It's fine, with or without "this way".
