The case against a Las Vegas store clerk accused of shooting and killing a 13-year-old boy will move forward, according to the Las Vegas Justice Court.
The judge who presided over the preliminary hearing for Raad Sunna Friday said there was enough evidence and probable cause to move forward with a trial.
Sunna, 24, is accused of shooting and killing Fabriccio Patti after he allegedly attempted to steal merchandise from a smoke shop. The Dec. 2 shooting happened at the Lucky’s Cigar & Smokes on Flamingo Road near Durango Drive.
An arrest report said, on the night of the shooting, Sunna called the police and waited outside for them to arrive. He told police one of the teens ran towards him, and he drew his firearm and began shooting, the report said.
Metro said Sunna told them he believed he was about to be robbed or killed and was in fear for his life. However, Patti’s autopsy showed the teen was shot seven times from back to front.
Metro Police also said none of the teens were armed.
Sunna is charged with murder.
