A Las Vegas man accused of opening fire at a mall on New Year’s Eve has been reported by his own mother, police say.

Jarvis Williams, 26, now faces charges of attempted murder, carrying a concealed weapon without a license and battery, according to prison records. He was taken into custody on Jan. 5 after his mother Gloria Slack contacted investigators, according to a police report obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

“At this point, Slack broke down and started crying,” police reportedly wrote in the document. “She then said she wanted to report her son for carrying out the shooting.”

Jarvis Williams is currently being held on $200,000 bond.

LAS VEGAS NEW YEAR’S ROBLES LEAVE 2 DEAD, SUSPECTS DETAINED

Investigators believe the shooting was an act of retaliation. Williams and her mother were allegedly targeted by one of the victims – identified as Elijah Herbert – in a shooting last October, Fox5 Las Vegas reported, also citing the document.

Police wrote that the October attack prompted Williams to ‘deal with it’ – without giving further details – and that the New Year’s Eve shooting happened after the pair argued at the mall, added the station.

The shooting took place at the Meadows Mall in Las Vegas.
