The suspect police say fired at officers at a mall in Chandler and then held workers at a fast food restaurant hostage now faces a slew of felony charges.

Adam Armando Hernandez Jr. surrendered after an hours-long standoff Wednesday and is being held on $1 million bond. Charges include kidnapping, attempted murder and assault on police officers.

Court records released Thursday show a U.S. Marshals Service task was tracking the 27-year-old when he drove to the mall and officers tried to stop him from entering. He reportedly ran inside, through several stores and outside again, where he opened fire on officers and hit one officer's SUV.

Hernandez then ran back inside the mall, through it and across the street, where he ran inside a Baja Fresh restaurant and held two workers hostage.
