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.
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.
