One of the three was a woman, Victim 1, who was most critically injured and reportedly was pregnant. Surveillance video showed a group that included the critically injured woman, encountered a second group in the mall that included the defendant. The two groups passed each other at the mall entrance. A verbal argument began. A victim uninvolved with either group was shot in the leg. The rest of the second group ran to the parking lot. Victim 1 had not followed closely with her group when it encountered the other group. She appeared to be sitting down on a bench about 30 feet away. Witnesses identified as the shooter the defendant or a man who matched the defendant's appearance.
