Raad Sunna, the store clerk accused of shooting and killing a 13-year-old teen, made his initial court appearance Thursday morning at the Regional Justice Center.

Sunna, 24, is facing a murder charge in the death of Fabriccio Patti who was killed on Dec. 2.

Fabriccio and two other teens were stealing items from a smoke shop on Flamingo Road and Durango Drive when Fabriccio was shot several times. The two teens were charged with attempted robbery but police have said those charges will likely be reduced to theft.

During the court appearance, Sunna who currently out of jail on a $150,000 bail did have to surrender his passport.

Sunna's attorney called the shooting a tragedy that has affected two families.

Sunna's preliminary hearing was set for Jan. 19.
