The accused National Peanut Festival parade shooter pleads not guilty to murder and assault on Tuesday.  19-year-old Mekhi Lawton is accused of shooting two men, one of which died last November in downtown Dothan with thousands of spectators in attendance.  Lawton’s attorney says the shooting was in self-defense.
