LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The Kentucky man charged with drawing a gun and firing at a Louisville mayoral candidate has pleaded not guilty.
Quintez Brown, 21, was arrested and charged with attempted murder and four counts of wanton endangerment shortly after the February shooting. The Democratic candidate, Craig Greenberg, was not hit by the gunfire but said a bullet grazed his sweater.
Brown is facing one count of Criminal Attempt Murder and four counts of Wanton Endangerment First Degree. During his arraignment on April 4, his first pre-trial date was scheduled for June 9.
The Louisville Community Bail Fund paid Brown's $100,000 cash bond. Under the terms of home incarceration, Brown has been fitted with a GPS ankle monitor and is confined to his home.
Brown must continue to have no contact with Greenberg or his campaign staff and cannot possess firearms, the judge said.
Louisville Metro Police said Brown appears to have acted alone and the motive remains under investigation.
