LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Los Angeles hotel owner has pleaded not guilty in the killing of a homeless man in Venice Beach.

Sris Sinnathamby entered the plea Tuesday to first-degree murder. He faces life in prison if convicted.

Sinnathamby owns the Cadillac Hotel in Venice Beach.

Prosecutors say he wasn’t holding the gun that killed 26-year-old Jascent Warren around 2 a.m. Sunday but may have directed the attack, which followed some sort of disturbance near the hotel.

Police say another man was shot in the leg and hospitalized in stable condition.

Authorities say the gunman fled in a black SUV.
