According to the documents, one involved person, identified as J.B. was working at a kiosk inside the mall. He was approached by a group of people who were wearing hoods and masks.
Mall surveillance footage showed the group of individuals loitering near the kiosk before J.B.’s arrival, per the documents. The man who approached him was later identified as Yessa Nena.

Eight of the counts are for felony discharge of a firearm. According to the document, Ahmed discharged a firearm knowing that he was endangering others. It lists each of the firearm discharge counts as a third-degree felony.
