According to investigators Emmanuel went to the Mall of America specifically “looking for someone to kill”.He had copped that he “planned to kill an adult because they usually stand near the balcony” but instead set his sights on boy victim Landen Hoffman.
He admitted to the police that he had frequented the Bloomington mall for several years and made efforts to talk to women at the mall, “but had been rejected, and the rejection caused him to lash out and be aggressive”.
He “acknowledged repeatedly in his interview that he had planned and intended to kill someone at the mall that day and that he was aware that what he was doing was wrong”.
After he was read his Miranda rights he confessed to throwing Landen Hoffman off the balcony. He was charged with attempted premeditated first-degree murder for the crime.
