MADISON, Wis. - The teen and man accused in the shooting on Madison's east side entered not guilty pleas in court Thursday, according to court records.

Jamie J.C. Hayes, 17, and Duan Briggs, 21, are charged with first-degree reckless endangerment after officials said Briggs fired multiple shots, hitting and injuring a 16-year-old LaFollette High School student and striking an occupied car.

In court Thursday, Briggs and Hayes stood mute and the court entered not guilty pleas. Both of their cases will head for trial.

According to the criminal complaint, the victim told police Hayes had told Briggs to shoot during a fight on Sept. 26 that involved Hayes' brother.

Hayes told police he never told Briggs to shoot. Briggs fired the gun several times, according to the complaint.

Briggs and Hayes are in jail in lieu of $50,000 cash bonds.
