Robert Steven Balderrama, 19, turned himself into police on April 23, in connection with a shooting across the street from Park Place mall the day before, authorities said.
Balderamma was booked into the Pima County jail on suspicion of one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and one count of aggravated assault with serious physical injury, said Sgt. Pete Dugan in a news release.
The shooting occurred about 4 p.m. on April 22, in the 5900 block of East Broadway, across the street from the mall near a jewelry store.
Detectives were able to interview the wounded man at a hospital, where he was driven by a woman he was with before police arrived at the scene.
The victim and the suspect were involved in a verbal dispute near the mall and eventually walked across the street, Dugan said Saturday. “As the altercation continued, one of the men brandished a handgun and shot the other man multiple times.”
