A 29-year-old man pleaded not guilty Tuesday to one count of attempted murder in connection with a shooting in Huntington Beach that left one person critically injured, court records show.
Westminster resident Dennis Tri Gia Dang also denied sentencing enhancement allegations of attempted premeditated murder, discharging a firearm causing great bodily injury or death and causing great bodily injury resulting in coma or paralysis, court documents show.
Police responded just after 12:15 p.m. Sunday after a caller reported seeing a man lying on the ground bleeding in the area of Magnolia Street and Warner Avenue. The man suffered a gunshot wound to the upper body and remained in critical condition as of Monday, according to authorities.
Dang was arrested at 2:45 a.m. Monday, according to the Huntington Beach Police Department’s arrest log. He was booked into Orange County Jail with bail set at $3 million and is scheduled back in court Oct. 30, jail and court records show.
Huntington Beach police are continuing their investigation and looking for “other involved parties,” Officer Angela Bennett said in a statement Tuesday.
