The man accused of shooting a tow truck driver who was trying to repossess his vehicle pleaded not guilty in Milford Superior Court Thursday.

Efrain Rodriguez, an Ansonia resident who is free on a $150,000 bond, made a quick court appearance. He’s due back in court May 12.

Rodriguez, 30, is charged with first-degree assault, carrying a pistol without a permit, criminal possession of a pistol and violation of a protective order.

Police said Rodriguez shot Christopher Davis, 35, point blank in the knee after arguing with him about the repossession. Davis’ injury required extensive surgery.

The shooting happened March 3 on Reichelt Terrace.

Rodriguez’s companion, Sabrina Vasquez, 30, was charged with interfering with a police officer because she tried to take credit for shooting Davis, police said at the time.

She’s due in Derby court April 21.

Rodriguez was under a court order to stay away from Vasquez at the time of the arrest, police said.
