A January trial was scheduled Thursday for two men and a woman accused of being involved in the fatal shooting of a customer during a convenience store robbery in Clairemont.
He’s also charged in connection with a shootout with San Diego police detectives two days later.
The hearing before San Diego Superior Court Judge Kenneth So was the first to also include two co-defendants.
Adan Salah Ibrahim, 30, is charged with murder and robbery. His girlfriend, Kristine Mariano, is accused of being an accessory.
The judge set a tentative trial date of Jan. 22.
A hearing will take place in November to determine whether their trials will be held at the same time or separately.
Surveillance video shows Mumin inside an Arco am/pm store on Balboa Avenue pointing a gun at the clerk and Schade about 3:45 a.m., demanding cash and telling them to get down, Deputy District Attorney Michael Runyon alleged.
The clerk, Jose Aguilar, testified in a previous hearing that the robber was wearing a dark beanie and a bandana covering his face.
Aguilar said he put the cash drawer on the counter. But Schade — a neighborhood regular — took a swipe at the robber’s gun as if to push it out of his face, and Mumin took a step back and shot the victim once in the chest, the prosecutor alleged.
The defendant fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, according to court testimony.
Runyon said Ibrahim was the getaway driver — behind the wheel of Mariano’s vehicle, which she quickly sold. She also was in the car during the robbery, the prosecutor said.
Two days later, officers tracked Mumin to an apartment complex on Winona Avenue in City Heights. Runyon said Mumin hid behind a set of doors in a community room, and as a detective tried one of the doors, the defendant opened fire from behind another door, prompting the detectives to return fire, wounding Mumin in the abdomen.
A police criminalist testified that DNA taken from the recovered beanie and a 9mm shell casing matched the defendant.
Mumin is also charged with burglary, robbery, possession of a firearm and ammunition by a felon and two counts of attempted murder of a peace officer. He faces life in prison without the possibility of parole if convicted.
Ibrahim and Mariano were arrested in January of this year at an Inglewood apartment, Runyon said. He said Ibrahim faces 26 years to life in prison if found guilty, while Mariano is looking at a maximum of three years behind bars.
