Not-guilty plea entered for Warren man charged with Sunday night assault


WARREN ā€” A not-guilty plea was entered today in Warren Municipal Court for Noel L. Evans, 25, of 3rd Street Southwest, to a felonious-assault charge after a man alleged Evans fired a gun at him Sunday night in the Hampshire House Apartments on Fifth Street Southwest. Bond of $50,000 was set.

The victim was not hit by the gunfire.
