Suspect in shooting of San Diego sports anchor pleads not guilty to attempted murder

A house painter has pleaded not guilty to an attempted murder charge in the shooting of a San Diego television sportscaster a week ago.

Mike Montana was arraigned Tuesday in San Diego Superior Court.

Prosecutors say he opened fire and wounded Kyle Kraska outside the KFMB-TV anchor's home in the suburban style neighborhood of Scripps Ranch.

Montana was also charged with making a threat against another individual.

Police say Montana was in a dispute with Kraska over work done on the reporter's home. Authorities say Montana fired multiple shots through Kraska's silver Mercedes.

Montana surrendered to authorities after a SWAT standoff at his home in El Cajon.

The judge has set bail at $750,000.

The CBS affiliate says Kraska is making good progress in his recovery at a local hospital.
