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.
