SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - A judge has ordered that a man charged with firing 54 shots outside a Newport Beach mall be held without bail.

Marcos Sarinana Gurrola was charged Tuesday with 54 counts of discharging a gun in public and two counts of assault because a mother and her 4-year-old daughter were knocked down and injured as they fled.

The 42-year-old ex-security guard also was charged with 10 more counts after prosecutors linked him to a similar shooting in 2011 at the same mall.

No one was hit in either shooting at Fashion Island.

A police detective says Gurrola told him he discharged the gun because "it made him feel better."

The Orange County Register ( http://bit.ly/XFXlri) reports police are investigating several similar incidents involving Gurrola.

Gurrola did not enter a plea. He's scheduled for arraignment Jan. 11.
