KLTV has obtained the arrest affidavit for 25-year-old Ricky Neal Jr., the Henderson man arrested after the fatal shooting at the Tyler mall.
Neal is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 23-year-old Christopher Mass. On Monday, authorities added another charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, after police said Neal tried to shoot another man, Jonathon Lamone Dews, 29, of Tyler.
Mass' funeral is scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday, at Green Acres Baptist Church in Tyler. A fund has also been set up in his name. Those interested can donate to the Chris Mass Tragedy Fund at the Cooperative Teachers Credit Union in Tyler.
The shooting happened near the JC Penney parking lot around 9:30 a.m. on Saturday.
Neal appeared in court on Monday afternoon to determine who will represent him in the case. O.W. "Buddy" Loyd has been appointed to represent Neal.
Neal's bonds have been set at $750,000 for first degree murder and $500,000 for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
