Not guilty pleas were entered Wednesday on behalf of a teenager charged in the shooting of a man in Parkland over the weekend.
Pierce County prosecutors have charged Sirdonald L. Stallworth, 19, with first-degree assault and first-degree criminal trespassing in an attack that left a man badly wounded.
Court Commissioner Meagan Foley ordered Stallworth jailed in lieu of $300,000 bail during his arraignment in Superior Court.
He's accused of shooting a 22-year-old man about 1:30 p.m. Sunday near Pacific Avenue and 115th Street South.
Witnesses reported hearing six gunshots and then seeing two men run off.
Not long after, the victim stumbled into a nearby convenience store seeking help for gunshot wounds to his chest and wrist, court records show.
Pierce County sheriff's deputies later identified Stallworth as the alleged shooter and arrested him.
A specific motive has not been divulged, but "the victim stated that he believed the shooting was gang-related as he is in a gang himself," court records show.
