LOWELL, Mass. (AP) — A Lowell man charged with fatally shooting another man at a weekend house party in Dracut has been held without bail.

Davanni Curran pleaded not guilty Monday in Lowell District Court to murder and other charges in connection with the Sunday morning shooting of 31-year-old Trevor Washington.

Both men had been at a party hosted by Curran's girlfriend.

Prosecutors say the 22-year-old Curran had two pending cases and was out on bail at the time of the shooting.

Authorities say the two men got into a confrontation in the kitchen of the home before the shooting, which occurred outside. Washington was pronounced dead at the hospital with a gunshot wound to the chest.

Defense attorney Stanley Norkunas told The Sun of Lowell that Curran maintains he didn't shoot anyone.
