BOSTON (AP) - A 21-year-old actor in “High School Musical 3” and other films is facing charges with an underage teenager after Boston police say someone shot at officers checking out gunfire Tuesday night.

The officers said Justin Martin pointed a gun at them as he tried to flee a Dorchester neighborhood where they had heard shooting.

Prosecutors said a 17-year-old boy now facing gun charges is suspected of shooting at the officers. No one was hurt.

In court Wednesday, defense attorney Lawrence Kelly said Martin has acted in 20 movies and has no record of violence. He said Martin denies the charges. Martin pleaded not guilty to assault and firearms violations. His bail was set at $35,000.

The teen’s juvenile court bail was set at $150,000.

IMDB.com says Martin appeared in the 2012 Denzel Washington movie “Flight.”
