KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The preliminary hearing for the former Wayside West employee charged with chasing down and shooting a customer, has been adjourned.

Orlando Mitchell is charged with shooting and killing 23-year-old Damian Tejada in front of a bar full of customers on April 17th, after a verbal confrontation that turned into a violent altercation.

A judge was scheduled to hear the case against Mitchell to determine if there is enough there to bind him over to stand trial, but it’s been delayed.

Mitchell’s attorney says he needs more time to prepare a defense. The suspect is charged with open murder and a felony gun charge, and will remain in custody without bond.
