FORT MYERS, Fla. — The accused Zombicon shooter, Jose Bonilla, appeared before a judge Wednesday morning for a case management hearing.

Fort Myers police say in 2015 Bonilla shot into a crowd in the downtown area as the Zombicon event was underway.

Investigators say one person was killed and several others were injured as a result of the gunfire.

While in a Fort Myers courtroom, Bonilla was asked to give his fingerprints but he argued with the judge.

He eventually pleaded not guilty to the numerous charges he’s facing including 2nd degree murder, aggravated battery with a firearm (5 counts), and tampering with evidence.

The state prosecutor says more statements have come in over the last few weeks that is significant in this case. Bonilla's trial is set for April 22nd.
