LAS VEGAS (AP) - A prosecutor says a 22-year-old man dressed in battle gear fired at least 20 shots outside and inside a Las Vegas convenience store, killing a man sitting in a parked car but missing customers in store aisles.

The suspect, Jesus Javier Uribe, refused to attend a scheduled court appearance Friday on multiple felony charges including murder and attempted murder.

A judge acknowledged Uribe’s absence and ordered him held in jail without bail pending arraignment

Tuesday on charges also including robbery, burglary and illegal discharge of a weapon.

Uribe was arrested Thursday after Las Vegas police issued a public plea to find the man responsible for what was characterized as a random criminal act.
