One of the men accused of the shooting death of a 12-year-old girl in providence pleaded not guilty in superior court this morning.

Prosecutors say 21-year-old Brendan Castro opened fire at a graduation party killing 12-year-old Aynis Varga.

Police say Castro and four others are suspected members of the Hartford Soldier gang. The suspects opened fire at the crowd believing them to be members of a rival gang.

Four others have been charged in the crime.

One of them pleaded guilty last weekend and was sentenced to life in prison.
