Gary Man Has “Not Guilty” Plea On-record for Police Shooting
October 2, 2013 — A 22-year-old Gary man accused of shooting an Indianapolis police officer has pleaded “not guilty” to charges of attempted murder and carrying a handgun without a license.
Charles Williams entered the plea yesterday in Marion Superior Court.
Authorities said Williams wounded Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Officer Gregory Stevens in a leg last week at an apartment complete on the east side of Indianapolis.
The shooting occurred four days after IMPD officer Rod Bradway was killed by a man who police say had been holding a woman at gunpoint.
Stevens has been released from a hospital.
Williams is being held on a $250,000 bond in the Marion County Jail.
