FAIRFIELD — One of two suspects in a May 1 shooting near Laurel Creek Park that wounded two people made his first court appearance Monday since his arrest last week.

Terry McClure, 26, did not enter pleas to attempted murder and weapons charges. Instead, he was ordered to return to court Tuesday afternoon when his alleged accomplice, Deonta King, 26, is also scheduled to be arraigned on similar allegations.

Fairfield police arrested both men last week. Both men have extensive local criminal records.

McClure has also been implicated in a homicide and attempted homicide that occurred in late April in South Carolina.

    Absolutely nothing to do about color like so many like to make out. I'd be willing to bet that nearly ALL the horse thieves and gunslinging killers were nearly 100% white, and I'd treat everyone doing the same, today, EQUALLY!!!!!

    I believe MLK was referring to the racial implications of Jazz's statement; he is not saying that this man shouldn’t be prosecuted because he is black. I for one am very glad this man is off the streets. It’s a fickle thing, the internet.

    No racial implications meant in my statement, NONE, ZERO. Should be done just like it was back then, the criminal, horse (Car Thief) today, killer, whatever, was caught, usually tried straight away, or as soon as the area Judge rode into town. If found guilty of a hanging offense, it was usually carried out the next morning. Not sure how long it took the local carpenter to build that gallows thing. To me color or ethnicity makes ZERO difference, as someone else said this political correctness is a big part of the problem>>>GET A ROPE!!!!!

    MLK was a Republican and he would be ashamed of what was being said, done or implied in his name today. Please don't denigrate MLK. Your name should be "Al Sharpton''.

    Jazzazz i m with you on this one. Too many people bring the race card into it for anything. Regardless of color, a nimrod is a nimrod and should be dealt with swiftly and equally. OFF WITH HIS HEAD!!
