Two men pleaded not guilty in connection to a murder charge, before a Fresno County Judge Tuesday morning.

Tony Leon is accused of murder and attempted murder after shooting two women last week.

One of the victims, Nicole Jones, 18, later died from her injuries. Police say she was shot in the face at the intersection of Vassar and Glenn.

Investigators say Leon fired one shot from a sawed-off shotgun, hitting Jones and another woman.

Officers say Leon's friend, Joshua Woodworth, tried to hide the gun after the shooting.

Leon's bail was set at more than $3 million.
