Two people have been arrested in an alleged gun sale “gone bad” in the parking lot of The Gardens Mall in Palm Beach Gardens this week.
Jaedon Delton Johnson, 20, of Boynton Beach and Reagen Austin Hearn, 19, of Stuart, face charges of robbery with a firearm and aggravated battery in the incident in the parking lot of Saks Fifth Avenue at about 5 p.m. Monday.
Palm Beach Gardens police said they were arrested in Daytona Beach with the help of Volusia County Sheriff’s Office and members of the United States Marshals South Florida Caribbean Regional Fugitive Task Force.
Police said the alleged gun sale of a gun “went bad” and two people ran through the mall Monday evening. A man involved in the sale called police to report the incident. That person has not been identified. Police have not released any other information about what happened that night.
The incident caused some panic for those in the area as it came just 10 days after a shooting in the parking lot of the mall.
