MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) -- The 17-year-old suspect accused of shooting nine people at a high school football game at Ladd-Peebles Stadium last week was in court Wednesday morning, where he pleaded not guilty.
Nine people were shot, but nobody died, in the shooting Friday night just after a football contest between Williamson and LeFlore high schools.
Deangelo Parnell was in court for the arraignment hearing. Parnell is set to be back in court for a preliminary hearing Oct. 8.
Parnell is being held at Mobile County Metro Jail in lieu of bond totaling $540,000, for nine counts of attempted murder.
Authorities say Parnell opened fire within the concourse of the stadium.
The shooting prompted the Mobile County Public School System to establish a new protocol for sporting events, which includes the use of metal detectors at Ladd-Peebles and other stadiums used for high school football.
