BOSTON — A Boston man charged with gunning down another man in the shadow of one of Boston's most famous houses of worship has been ordered held without bail.

Michael Jordan was held at his arraignment Monday after pleading not guilty to first-degree murder and other charges connected to the August 2013 shooting death of 22-year-old Ahmir Lee.

Authorities say the 27-year-old Jordan shot Lee in Copley Square near Trinity Church.

A motive has not been made public.

Witnesses told police the shooter wore a blue shirt and fled in a cream-colored vehicle.

Prosecutors say Jordan had a similar car, and was seen in surveillance wearing a blue shirt soon after the shooting. His cellphone records indicated he was in the Copley square area at the time.

His lawyer had no comment.
