Cameron Williams, 22, also known as Charles Wilson, is suspected of gunning down Dominic Scott, also 22, at 8:24 a.m. Monday at Third Street and Palou Avenue.

Williams fled after the shooting but was arrested shortly afterward a few blocks away at Quesada Avenue and Keith Street, police said.

He pleaded not guilty this afternoon to murder and firearm charges and was ordered held on $2 million bail. He will return to court on March 21 to set a preliminary hearing.

Assistant District Attorney Andrew Clark said Williams has a lengthy criminal record, including previous convictions for grand theft, receiving stolen property and carrying a concealed firearm.

Clark said outside of court that prosecutors will likely also file gang enhancements to the charges at a later date.
