BUFFALO, N.Y. — A New York man accused of firing an assault-style rifle in a store parking lot is being held without bail after pleading not guilty to attempted murder and other charges.

Travis Green appeared in Erie County Court in Buffalo Wednesday after being indicted in the Nov. 14 shooting in suburban Cheektowaga, which injured one man.

Authorities say 29-year-old Green argued with an employee inside a dollar store before heading to the parking lot and firing multiple rounds at the store from at least one rifle. Police say Green was wearing body armor and had a second weapon in his car, along with 850 additional rounds.

Green faces charges of attempted murder, attempted assault, reckless endangerment and weapons possession.
