Derek Sotelo, 18, of Danbury, faces charges including reckless endangerment.
Police say he was part of a group of people looking to fight another group at the mall. They say he was armed with a hammer.
Surveillance video shows he presented it as a weapon, police say.
A 14-year-old boy turned himself in last week in connection with the shooting. He’s accused of firing a gun that struck a 15-year-old girl in the chest.
She is expected to survive.
