USA: 19-year-old Got An AR-15 Assault Rifle From Girlfriend’s Car, Pointed At Man To Robb Him, Victim Refused. Then Fired 30 Rounds Into The Air In The Parking Lot In Chandler Mall In Phoenix, AZ.


Murder is already a crime. We don't have a gun problem. We have a lack of self-control problem, a criminal supremacists problem and a Commie Democrats local district attorney's, judges, parole officers soft on crime problem, not doing shit to catch the criminals as in crimes go unsolved and when they do catch the criminals, they immediately release them back onto the streets to allow them to continue terrorizing the community. These same people siding with the criminals want to take away YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to keep and bear arms in order to defend yourself, your business, your family and home against these criminal supremacists and a tyrannical government. Remember, criminals DO NOT obey laws. Therefore, criminals will have access to guns through gun trafficking venues and you will be left defenseless with no guns because the same government siding with criminals they're allowing to terrorize you said they wanted to keep you safe from guns.

CHANDLER, Arizona - Chandler Police officials say they are investigating a shooting incident at Chandler Fashion Center, also known as Chandler Mall, on Aug. 1.

A day later, 19-year-old Nathaniel Anthony Vensor was arrested for allegedly shooting at least 30 rounds in the parking lot of the mall. Still, police maintain that no one was injured.

"At 10:34 am on August 2, 2022, police were dispatched to the Chandler Fashion Center with reports from security of Vensor shopping inside the mall. As Officers arrived, video surveillance captured Vensor shopping. Police arrested Vensor at 11:03 am. Vensor was unarmed and wearing the same baseball cap he purchased at the mall before the shooting on August 1, 2022," police said.

Shoppers describe scene

Sierra Thomas, who was at the mall at the time of the incident, described what happened as shoppers ran away.

"We're coming down the escalators, and we heard a bunch of people running through the halls, and we heard that there were shots fired," said Thomas. "We exited [through] the Forever 21 [exit]. Everyone was running. Everyone was tripping over each other. It's pretty scary."

The incident left some shoppers on edge.

"On Twitter, it says it's not a threat to the community or the mall, but now he is out in the community, so it's like, is he gonna go to Scottsdale next? Paradise Valley? What's next?" said Cassidy Wallin.

Court documents reveal new details

Chandler Police also released court documents related to the suspect.

In the documents, investigators accuse Vensor of pointing a rifle at an unidentified victim, causing that person to fear for his life.

"The victim refused to turn over his property to Vensor. According to the victim, Vensor fired shots at him and in the air. Vensor then fled the scene with his girlfriend in her vehicle, and the victim ran to safety inside the mall," read a portion of the court documents.

At the time of Vensor's arrest, investigators said they found 30 fentanyl pills in Vensor's possession, and during an interview that was conducted after Vensor was read his Miranda warnings, investigators noted that Vensor appeared to be under the influence of a narcotic drug.

This is not the first time Chandler Mall has seen a violent incident.

On March 2021, a fight at the mall ended with a stabbing incident that left some people injured. Four people were arrested in connection with the incident in May 2021. They were identified as Andrew Courtney, Tarik Deeb, Isaias Reece, and Nicholas Aguilar.

Phoenix area malls have seen incidents in recent years

The Phoenix area has seen a number of public safety incidents at shopping malls in recent years.

The incident at Chandler Mall on Aug. 1 happened just days after an incident at Arizona Mills, where authorities say an altercation led to reports of shots being fired. In this case, however, police officials said it is unclear if there were any shots actually fired, or if the reported loud noises came from the sounds of security gates closing. No injuries were reported.

In March 2022, a shooting injured a number of people, including a four-year-old child, at the Tanger Outlets near the Westgate Entertainment District in Glendale. Police later arrested a 17-year-old in connection with the incident. The teen, according to the Maricopa County Attorney's Office, will be charged as an adult, is identified as Raul Ulices Franco.

In May of 2020, three people were shot at the Westgate Entertainment District in Glendale. The shooter, since identified as Armando Hernandez Jr., admitted to carrying out the shooting, and told police he had been bullied, and wanted to gain respoct. He also said he had intended to injure 10 people.

On July 8, 2022, we reported that Hernandez, who pleaded guilty to four charges, included attempted murder, on a plea deal, was sentenced to 44 years in prison. Following his released, Hernandez will be placed under supervised probation for an additional seven years. He is barred from owning a weapon, and can never return to Westgate.

CHANDLER, Arizona — A suspect accused of firing 30 rounds from an assault rifle at a man and into the air outside a Chandler mall has been arrested, according to authorities.

Chandler police said 19-year-old Nathaniel Anthony Vensor has been booked into a Maricopa County jail on suspicion of 30 counts of unlawful discharge of a firearm and one count each of aggravated assault and possession of a weapon by a prohibited possessor.

It was unclear Wednesday if Vensor has a lawyer yet who can speak on his behalf.

According to court documents, Vensor was at the Chandler Fashion Center on Monday night with some friends.

Police said Vensor bought a baseball hat and then he and his friends went to their cars in the parking lot.

Vensor got an AR-15 assault rifle from his girlfriend’s car and allegedly pointed the weapon at one of the men and demanded jewelry, according to authorities.

Police said the man refused so Vensor fired 30 rounds and then drove away before officers arrived.
