The man police charged with shooting another man near the Charleston Town Center in June has pleaded not guilty.
Shaquille Burton, 20, pleaded not guilty to seven counts of wanton endangerment and malicious wounding.
Police said Burton shot Terrance Bonner, 18, of Charleston in broad daylight on the afternoon of June 17. Bonner was sitting in a vehicle along Clendenin Street between the Charleston Civic Center and Charleston Town Center when the shooting happened.
Five males fled the scene of the shooting, but police believe Burton was the trigger man. Bonner was dropped off at a local hospital for treatment.
Burton turned himself in to police later that week.
Burton was being held in the South Central Regional Jail on $100,000 bond. His case is expected to go to trial next month.
