LAS VEGAS (AP) - A judge in Las Vegas will consider the fitness for trial of a 20-year-old man accused of brandishing an unloaded handgun and feigning shots at traffic and tourists on the Las Vegas Strip.

A competency hearing is set Feb. 19 in state court for Kahleal Black.

Deputy Public Defender Christy Craig said Wednesday she’s seeking a mental health evaluation because Black showed clear signs of mental illness at a court appearance a week ago.

Black is jailed on $2 million bail pending arraignment on multiple felony charges including assault with a deadly weapon, weapon possession and resisting a police officer.

Two bystanders escaped serious injury when they were grazed by a police officer’s gunfire during a musical fountain show Jan. 22 in front of the Bellagio resort.

Black wasn’t wounded.
