FAIRFIELD — One of two suspects in a May 1 shooting near Laurel Creek Park that wounded two people pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and weapons charges during a brief court appearance Tuesday.

Deonta King, 26, was ordered to return to court May 27 for a probable cause hearing in front of Judge Donna Stashyn. He remains in jail with bail set at $5 million.

King’s alleged accomplice, Terry McClure, 26, also made a brief court appearance Tuesday. McClure, who has not entered pleas to attempted murder and weapons charges, said he was still trying to hire a lawyer. He was ordered to return to court Wednesday.

Fairfield police arrested both men last week in connection with a shooting that left two Fairfield men seriously injured. Both McClure and King have extensive local criminal records.

McClure was told Tuesday that authorities in South Carolina have already begun extradition proceedings against him. He has been implicated in a homicide and attempted homicide in late April in South Carolina.

    Of course he pleaded not guilty. That way he can take it to trial for a few years and if he ever gets convicted he will have time served and never see prison. Oldest trick in the book.

    Believe me, the worst thing you can do to the alleged perps is to send them back to South Carolina. That scares them more then anything California can muster up. For those of you who hate South Carolina, I heard a great joke today that's very old---''South Carolina--too small to be a Republic and too large to be declared an insane asylum!"
