ERIE, Pennsylvania — A northwestern Pennsylvania judge has denied a request to delay the trial of a man charged in a shooting at a private ballroom party that killed one man and injured three others.

The Erie Times-News (http://bit.ly/1m4UEPM ) reports that 22-year-old Courtney Harden-Pullium of Erie sought to postpone his July 14 trial because he recently changed attorneys.

Harden-Pullium is charged with criminal homicide, aggravated assault, reckless endangering and firearms offenses in the Jan. 5 shooting at the former East Erie Turners ballroom that killed 26-year-old Rashid Anderson.

Police said 100 to 200 people were present during the gunfire, which the victim's brother alleged was revenges for an earlier dispute at a New Year's Eve party.
