Man accused of throwing boy at Minnesota mall first sought to kill an adult: prosecutorsEmmanuel Aranda, who police said has a history of mental issues and arrests on relatively minor charges, went to the mall last Thursday and left without following through on his plan, the Hennepin County Attorney’s office said in a statement. In a GoFundMe post that has so far raised more than $570,000 for the child’s medical expenses, a friend of the family identified as Noah Hanneman of Woodbury, Minnesota, said on Sunday that the boy, whom he identified by his first name Landon, was still fighting for his life. Aranda, 24, of Minneapolis, will face attempted premeditated first-degree murder charges when he makes his first court appearance on Tuesday, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said in a statement.
