MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Prosecutors say a 21-year-old man has been charged with shooting a man in a busy Memphis mall.

Shelby County’s district attorney’s office says Otis “OJ” Reddic Jr. turned himself in to police Wednesday.

Reddic was indicted on attempted first-degree murder and eight weapons-related charges stemming from a March 6 shooting inside Oak Court Mall.

Authorities say 22-year-old Theodis Pitchford was with a group of friends near a kiosk when was shot by Reddic.

Pitchford was hit in the left side and was hospitalized in critical condition. He survived.

The case is being handled by the district attorney’s Multi-Agency Gang Unit Prosecution Team.

Reddic is being held on $1 million bond. Online court records do not show if he has a lawyer.
