A $75,000 bond was set Friday for a man who allegedly fired shots inside the Pines Mall Thursday afternoon.
Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set the bond after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge Montrellis Henry, 31, with aggravated assault and with being a felon in possession of a firearm.
No one was injured.
According to a probable cause affidavit from Detective Deshawn Bennett, officers were sent to the mall at about 4:35 p.m. where two victims reported that an unidentified woman had told them that a man later identified as Henry had walked through a restricted area into an area of the mall that is closed to the public.
Henry reportedly saw the two individuals and fired two shots at them, and as they ran, Henry allegedly fired a third shot as he chased them, then ran out of the mall.
Bennett reported that Henry was taken into custody in a field outside the mall.
When he was interviewed, he reportedly said he was in the mall and saw the two individuals but denied firing shots at them and denied having a handgun.
Records at the prosecutor's office showed that Henry was placed on probation this year on two counts of theft by receiving a firearm.
The Public Defender's Office was appointed to represent Henry, who was ordered to have no contact with the alleged victims until the case is settled.
