COLUMBIANA, Ala. (AP) - The man accused of fatally shooting his co-worker in the store’s parking lot has pleaded not guilty to murder.

Court records say 23-year-old Kareem Dacar Gaymon entered the plea in Shelby County Circuit Court Tuesday.

Gaymon is charged in the death of 25-year-old Xavier Montez Beasley. He was found dead Sept. 5 in the parking lot of the Home Depot in Hoover where the two worked.

Police have said Gaymon left work earlier that night and waited for Beasley in the store’s parking lot. Prosecutors said in a bond recommendation document that 14 shots were fired, seven hit Beasley and the shooting was unprovoked.

He’s being held on $1 million bond in the Shelby County jail.
