A 30-year-old man pleaded not guilty today to carrying out a pair of shootings in Inglewood, killing one man and injuring three others.
Daniel Martinez, 30, of Inglewood, is facing one count each of murder, shooting at an inhabited dwelling or motor vehicle and possession of an assault weapon, along with three counts of attempted murder. The criminal complaint also includes gun and gang allegations.
He is being held on $6.04 million bail and was ordered to return to court on Oct. 2 for a preliminary hearing to determine if there is sufficient evidence to proceed to trial.
Martinez was arrested Aug. 23 after the second shooting, in which a man was shot in the head while driving near Hyde Park and West boulevards. The man crashed his vehicle after being shot, but survived.
Martinez is also accused of opening fire around 5:30 p.m. Aug. 20 on three men who were standing on a sidewalk in the 900 block of West Beach Avenue. All three were struck by gunfire and taken to a hospital, where 27-year- old Alhmo Davis was pronounced dead. The other two men suffered non-life- threatening injuries, police said.
