CINCINNATI (AP) — A man who allegedly opened fire in a crowded Cincinnati nightclub has pleaded not guilty to two murder charges and three dozen other charges.

A Hamilton County judge on Monday ordered 27-year-old Cornell Beckley to remain held on $1.7 million bond. He was initially arrested by police on a murder charge in the March 26 gun battle, and a grand jury last week added charges including involuntary manslaughter, inducing panic, and felonious assault.

Beckley’s attorney has blamed the charges against him on public outcry and politics.

A pretrial hearing was set for April 21, with a tentative trial date of May 30.

Authorities say a dispute apparently between groups from two Cincinnati neighborhoods escalated into violence while some 200 people were in the Cameo club. Two died, 15 others were injured.

      “Black people donated their organs and guess who received them White people…” wow that was eye-opening. I never gave that a second thought, but you are right, while I don’t care who gets my organs when I die, it’s sad to know that we are dying at such a rapid pace and white folks are benefit greatly in this way. STAY WOKE!

  2. The other ethnic races are laughing at us black folks the way we kill one another. Wake up black America and to be honest our race are so quick to be combative with one another .

    Unfortunately, this young 27 y.o. man didn’t see value in himself or people who looked just like him. Now two people (three if you include him) have lost their lives because he thought so low of himself. I beg you, each one teach one, every one of us has something to offer. Some of us are turning out so great and others are just turned-out and that’s unfortunate for our society. How sad.

      @ specialt “Some of us are turning out so great and others are just…turned out” Profound and well stated. You certainly win the Internet today with that comment! What’s so disturbing is that…the “self-hate is so deep-seeded.
