Fairfield shooting suspect gets lawyer, enters plea

By From page A4 | May 16, 2014

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 Thursday.

Terry McClure, 26, and his defense attorney Thomas Maas were ordered to return to court May 27 for a probable cause hearing.

The hearing date coincides with the probable cause hearing scheduled for McClure’s alleged accomplice, Deonta King, 26. King pleaded not guilty last week to similar charges.

Both men remain in jail with bail set at $5 million.

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 is wanted by authorities in South Carolina where he has been implicated in a late-April homicide and attempted homicide.

    If you need a lawyer, your guilty already!! If i knew deep down inside that i was innocent and was being tried for something of this nature, i wouldnt need anyone to proclaim my innocence. OFF WITH HIS HEAD!

    In today's society, you need a lawyer. You cannot beat the system without one. Whether or not you're innocent. A lot jurors and judges judge you by race. You need a lawyer to fight for your rights!

    You're crazy not to want a lawyer, especially if you're being charged with murder! Do you know that innocent people are jailed all the time? These people spend years in jail for crimes that they did not commit. Getting a lawyer doesn't mean you are guilty.

    Wanted in South Carolina for a late APRIL Homocide and facing charges in Solano County a month later for nearly the same thing...This street scum definitely smells of innocence to me!
