A Stockton man pleaded not guilty today to a murder charge in connection with the fatal shooting of an East Palo Alto man in October.

Warren Oleg Morrison, Jr., 23, entered a not guilty plea in San Mateo County Superior Court today and was ordered to return on March 14, 2016 for a preliminary hearing, according to Chief Deputy District Attorney Karen Guidotti.

Morrison is accused of shooting Jamal Magee, 31, around 9:30 p.m. on Oct. 25 in the 300 block of Wisteria Drive in East Palo Alto after a dispute.

Morrison, who remains in custody with bail set at $5 million, fled the area after the shooting but was arrested in Tracy on Nov. 11, according to East Palo Alto police.
