A judge set bail at $25,000 on Friday for a 24-year-old man charged after a gunshot was fired inside the Fashion Show mall in Las Vegas on Memorial Day.
Prosecutors are not expected to pursue charges of assault with a deadly weapon against Hasean Quinn, though he still faces one count of discharging a firearm into an occupied structure.
Quinn’s lawyer, Lisa Rasmussen, declined to comment on the allegations outside of court.
The shooting occurred just after 6 p.m. Monday at the Strip mall, 3200 Las Vegas Blvd. South. No one was injured.
Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Ann Zimmerman said assault charges initially filed in court records had stemmed from the number of people who had been frightened by the gunshot.
Las Vegas police said Monday that a preliminary investigation revealed there was a fight and that a shot was fired as it broke up.
The gunshot prompted a heavy police response and precautionary evacuations.
Police blocked entrances around the mall for hours. Some officers dressed in tactical gear gathered near police vehicles that lined Fashion Show Drive on the north side of the shopping center.
