Last updated on Monday, March 26, 2012

(INDIANAPOLIS) - A 16-year-old charged with shooting five other teens along the canal in downtown Indianapolis has pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted murder and illegally carrying a gun.

Dai-Twon Williams entered his plea this morning during a Marion County court hearing. The teen is being charged as an adult and will be represented by a public defender.

His bond is set at $500,000.

The teen is charged with firing on the group after dark March 17 near the intersection of Ohio and West streets, hitting teens ranging from 14 to 17 years old.

One of the victims said in the probable cause affidavit that the boy had been threatening and harassing him on Facebook before the shooting.
