He appeared before a judge Monday morning and was given a temporary trial date in August.

Demario Snell, Mauricio Mance and Tyshun Fields were all killed in the shooting.

Deputies have never released a motive in the case.

“The next step is to focus on whether he needs a mental evaluation because this is a death penalty eligible case and once the defendant decides whether they want a mental evaluation or not will decide the next step forward for the case,” said District Attorney Scott Colom.

Bond was denied by the judge during Allen’s arraignment.
