The shooting around midday Saturday sent shoppers fleeing from the mall. A judge ordered 16-year-old Makhi Woolridge-Jones to be held without bail after he was charged with first-degree murder, assault and two gun charges.

His older brother, 18-year-old Brandon Woolridge-Jones, was charged as an accessory to the shooting, and his bail was set at $75,000.

In 2007, a gunman killed eight people and himself inside Von Maur at the mall.
