LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man accused of shooting a victim in the back during an alleged drug deal in Jeffersontown late Wednesday pleaded not guilty in court Friday.

Nicholas Darnell is facing one charge of assault after police say he shot another man during a drug deal Wednesday night at the Subway between South Hurstbourne Parkway and Linn Station Road.

Police arrested Darnell six hours after the shooting after a standoff in the Douglass Hills neighborhood.

A judge ordered Darnell to have no contact with the victim and set his bond at $100,000.

The victim survived, and remains hospitalized at the University of Louisville.
