LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A 19-year-old accused of killing another man in Fern Creek says it happened over a drug deal.

Yacir Raful, Jr. appeared in court Wednesday morning on charges of murder, robbery and tampering with evidence.

Police say he's the person who pulled the trigger in the shooting death of 21-year-old Gregory Norris. It happened last week at an apartment complex on Hames Trace.

Raful says another person was with him when the shooting happened and claims that person is the killer.

Raful pleaded not guilty to the charges against him.
