On June 22, Settles turned himself in to Fairfax County Police in connection to the June 18 shooting where no one was hit directly, but three people were injured as they were escaping the gunfire.

"We opposed bond for Mr. Settles due to the serious nature of the allegations," Commonwealth's Attorney Steve Descano said. "We will do everything in our power to keep our community safe. Firing a weapon inside a crowded shopping mall poses a serious threat to the safety of Fairfax County citizens, as well as visitors to our community."
