London White pleads not guilty to charges in connection with Bugline Trail shooting
WAUKESHA COUNTY — 22-year-old London White pleaded not guilty on Monday, June 13th to charges in connection with an apparent drug deal gone bad.
Prosecutors say White shot a 16-year-old boy near the Bugline Trail in May because he was given an empty backpack instead of marijuana. He faces the following charges:
- Attempted first degree intentional homicide, use of a dangerous weapon
- Possession with intent to deliver THC — less than 200 grams, as party to a crime
White has been in custody since the early morning hours of May 16th — two days after the shooting. Cash bond was set at $250,000 on May 25th — the date of his initial appearance in court. White is due back in court on July 22nd.
Meanwhile, Niikwame Bell, the second person charged in this case, faces one count of manufacturing/delivering THC (less than 200 grams), as party to a crime, and one count of maintaining a drug trafficking place in this case.
Officials with the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department said Bell was arrested on May 14th, shortly after the shooting.
