LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The man accused of shooting at LMPD officers with an air rifle pleads not guilty in court. 

68-year-old Oscar Walters appeared in arraignment court Saturday morning. 

Police were called to Walters' home on East Kenton Street near Churchill Downs on Thursday after a domestic violence assault was reported.
