A Battle Creek man, accused of firing multiple shots at another man and hitting him once, has pleaded not guilty to several charges.
43-year-old Derek Mefferd has been charged with Attempted Murder, and Assault While Displaying a Dangerous Weapon.
According to court documents, Mefferd fired a handgun multiple times at a man identified as Darin Fritz at a Battle Creek residence back on March 20th. The two men were reportedly fighting over a woman. Fritz was beating up Mefferd in the upstairs portion of the residence, when the woman pulled Fritz into a hall. Mefferd appeared in the room with a handgun and threatened Fritz, according to a criminal complaint. The fighting continued downstairs, where a gunshot struck Fritz in the lower right leg. Mefferd allegedly fired at least four shots into the floor around Fritz, and Fritz was also struck on the left side of the head with the pistol.
