Man accused of shooting, killing man outside bar enters plea


The man accused of shooting another man to death outside a local bar made a court appearance this afternoon. 

Police say Luis Pineda shot and killed Christopher Rodriguez in the parking lot of the Red Zone Sports Bar off Panama Lane. 

Friends tell 17 News Rodriguez worked security at a few local bars, but did not work at Red Zone. He leaves behind two children. 

Police tracked Pineda to a Lamont home where they say they found the murder weapon in the front yard. 

Pineda pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and is being held on $1 million bail.
