PORTLAND (AP) — A man who was arrested in connection with a fatal shooting at a recording studio has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge.

Gang Deng Majok, of Saco, pleaded not guilty Wednesday in Cumberland County Unified Criminal Court in Portland.

He was indicted this month on charges of murder and elevated aggravated assault.

Police say the charges against 30-year-old Majok stem from the shooting death of 19-year-old Treyjon Arsenault in May. Police say Arsenault and another man were shot at Da Block Studios. The second victim is recovering.

Another man, 20-year-old Johnny Ouch, of Westbrook, was charged July 16 with murder and elevated aggravated assault in connection with Arsenault’s death.

One of Majok’s two attorneys says he can’t comment on the charges because he hasn’t seen the state’s evidence.
