FREMONT, Ohio (AP) — A suspected gunman has pleaded not guilty in a northern Ohio bar shooting that left three men dead, including an off-duty officer.
Igmidio Mista (ig-MID’-ee-oh mis-tah) was in a Fremont courtroom Thursday where he pleaded not guilty to murder, attempted murder and other charges.
He faces up to life in prison if convicted.
The shooting on March 9 at the Last Call Bar in Fremont left an off-duty police officer dead, along with one of his relatives and a bartender.
Investigators and family members of the victims say a fight broke out in the bar just before the shooting.
