BOSTON (WHDH) - The man accused of opening fire in the North End over the summer pleaded not guilty in court Tuesday as he faces charges related to the incident.
Officials said Patrick Mendoza allegedly fired multiple shots at a man on Hanover Street on July 12 before riding away on his bike.
The man was not hurt but the shooting damaged the window of the nearby Modern Pastry bakery.
Video from the night of the shooting obtained by 7NEWS showed a man who police say was Mendoza as he rode up on a bicycle and began firing. The victim could be seen running away after taking cover behind a nearby vehicle.
Mendoza is the now-former owner of Monica’s Trattoria in the North End. He was indicted in August on various charges.
In court this week, Mendoza’s defense team and prosecutors argued over bail. No decision was made.
Mendoza is due back in court for a dangerousness hearing in December.
