MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - A southern Oregon man accused of shooting and injuring a rival during a fight over a woman has pleaded not guilty.

The Mail Tribune reports (https://is.gd/U9LhpV ) 51-year-old Martin Hutton of White City entered his pleas Monday in Medford. He’s charged with assault, criminal mischief, unlawful use of a weapon and recklessly endangering another person.

Police said in court records the incident happened last month when Hutton tried to enter a travel-trailer where his girlfriend was with an ex-boyfriend.

Authorities say the man punched Hutton in the face through the window. Hutton then retrieved a .45-caliber handgun from his vehicle and returned to the trailer window after firing two shots at the man’s pickup.

Police say Hutton was punched in the face a second time. He then stepped back and allegedly fired a bullet that entered the victim’s hand and traveled up his arm.
