The suspect in the deadly shooting last week at a Bakersfield casino made his first appearance in court Tuesday.

Keon Brackenridge pleaded not guilty to murder in the first degree, two counts of attempted murder, and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Brackenridge was arrested as the suspect in the Golden West Casino shooting that happened Friday.

Investigators say Brackenridge got into an altercation with security guard Richard Iloilo, which led to the two shooting at each other.

Brackenridge is due back in court later this month.
