Apparently he made a verbal threat which they considered 'attempted murder.' Who knows. If he's homeless at least he's got a home now -- a roof over his head, three meals a day and a cot to sleep in, not to mention television, etc.

Give him 20 years at the 4 Th st. Homeless Crossing shelter. For the public's info. There has been 23 calls this week for seizures, shallow breathing , alcohol poison, knife wounds & drug overdose at the crossing !Really it might be a good place for all the mall rats . Szakos Sheet should spend a week running the place .

My understanding from other news stories is that he pulled the trigger 6 times but the gun malfunctioned. I would venture a guess that pulling the trigger repeatedly would qualify the crime as attempted murder and officially annoint the intended victim as one lucky duck.

And the downtown mall owners wonder why people are losing interest in shopping there and meanwhile new businesses are popping up all along 29 North...
