Emmanuel Aranda, 24, grabbed the child and tossed him down nearly 40 feet on Friday, leaving the boy with life-threatening injuries, including multiple broken bones and severe head trauma, according to charging documents.

Aranda ran away from the scene, but police apprehended him at a nearby light rail station in Bloomington, about 10 miles south of Minneapolis. Officers said he appeared "calm" as he was arrested and never questioned why he was taken into custody.

Aranda told investigators he was "looking for someone to kill, but it did not 'work out,'" according to a probable cause document released Monday.

9. Sounds like the child is almost dead.

Dreadful.
Poor thing could last for a long time with machines doing the maintenance.
He’ll never be normal again. That’s if he actually survives.

10. According to WaPo's coverage, the charge is 'attempted' premeditated first-degree murder..

He told the police that he came to the mall specifically to kill someone:

When Bloomington police questioned him, he told them repeatedly that he had “come to the mall that day looking for someone to kill, but it did not ‘work out,'” authorities said. He said he had planned to kill an adult before ultimately choosing the young boy, authorities said.

The child sustained extensive head injuries in a 40 foot fall, although he is still alive. Awful.

11. Here's a picture of the suspect.

[link:|

He is under close arrest, charged with attempted first degree murder. If convicted he will find that the State of Minnesota does not have the death penalty for the attempted murder of child, but the prisoners in the State Pen might.

12. What an absolutely evil piece of shit.

Maybe a hulking inmate will toss him off the third floor of whatever prison he's going to.
