FAIRFIELD — One of the two alleged gunmen in the deadly April 11 Grande Circle shootout pleaded not guilty Wednesday to murder and attempted murder charges.
Danny Jeffreys, 19, and his defense attorney Leslie Prince were ordered to return to court May 27 for a probable cause hearing.
Jeffreys had been on the run since shortly after the shooting that killed Tereaun Berry and wounded an unidentified 25-year-old man from Vacaville. Berry, 26, also from Vacaville, was shot multiple times in an afternoon dispute between two groups in the street and in the parking lot of a Grande Circle apartment complex.
Jeffreys was arrested last week in Memphis, Tenn. He was brought back to California and was booked into the Solano County jail over the weekend.
Authorities are still looking for a second suspected gunman, Timothy J. Mitchell III, 20.
Donald R. Hill Jr., 24, Darren J. McFadden, 19, and Trayvon L. Wayfer, 19, all of Fairfield, have all pleaded not guilty to murder and attempted murder charges. The trio are expected to be back in court June 13 when a date may be set for their probable cause hearing.
