UTICA – The Utica man who is accused of shooting 17-year-old Stefan Medina to death earlier this month has pleaded not guilty to the crime.

Jorge Campos, 18, was arraigned in Utica City Court on Tuesday. He’s charged with felony first-degree manslaughter and several drug and weapon charges, which he pleaded not guilty to.

On the night of Aug. 19, Utica police were called to the 700 block of Elizabeth Street near Hubbell Street for a report of shots fired with a person injured. When they arrived on scene, they found Stefan Medina lying in a driveway with a gunshot wound. He was transported to a local hospital where he died from his injuries.

Campos was arrested and charged Tuesday evening. Police say the investigation is ongoing and additional charges are possible.

Campos is being held in the Oneida County Jail on $75,000 cash bail or $150,000 bond. He's scheduled to appear in court again on Friday for a preliminary hearing.
