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.

Authorities say 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.
