Emmanuel Aranda said he was looking for someone to kill on the fateful day of Friday, April 12, after several women at the Minnesota mall rejected him for various reasons. "Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts".

24-year-old Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda, has been charged with 'Attempted Homicide'.

"This crime has shocked the community", Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said Monday in a statement announcing the charge.

Elverum was previously married to the late musician and illustrator Genevieve Castree, which whom he has a daughter. The 38-year-old Oscar-nominated actress and the 40-year-old musician were Wednesday last July in upstate NY .

Aranda told cops he went to the mall on Thursday intending to kill an adult but when it didn't go to plan, he returned on Friday and chose the boy instead, MPR News reported. He spoke to spell his name, and to say that he lived in a shelter. When asked by the judge whether he had any questions, he said, "Not at all".

Aranda had three prior incidents of disorderly conduct at the Mall of America, and had one violent episode at a restaurant in Chicago.

He was then ordered to undergo psychological evaluation or treatment following the earlier mall assaults.

Freeman said prosecutors will seek a $2 million bond to hold Aranda in jail for now, and "would pursue a longer sentence based on the aggravating factors of particular cruelty, the vulnerability of the boy and committing the violent act in front of other children and the boy's mother", according to a statement from his office. He urged the Legislature and those who are calling for aggressive retribution to focus on mental health issues.
