Surveillance video showed the two men exited the store and walked north. Ten seconds later, according to prosecutors, Jordan approached and fired shots toward the men.

The criminal complaint notes that Jordan was convicted of substantial battery in 2016 and therefore prohibited from possessing a firearm due to that felony conviction.

Jordan made his initial appearance in court on Thursday, June 17, where cash bond was set at $35,000 and he was ordered to have no contact with the two men listed in the complaint.
