IOWA CITY, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- Prosecutors have charged the man accused of shooting three people on the Iowa City Ped Mall in August with gang activity.

Lamar Wilson also faces charges of first degree murder, attempted murder, and weapons violations. He plans to use Iowa's new "stand your ground law" in his defense.

The shooting happened in the early morning hours on August 27th. Police say Wilson killed one man and hurt two others. They also say it was not a random shooting but a dispute between two rival "groups."

Wilson's trial is scheduled for November seventh.
