Gang-related murder suspect says he's not guilty

24-year-old Jerel Stanfield is the gang member shot by police on March 31st hours after they say he killed a rival gang member.
Jerel Stanfield was in a Fresno courtroom on Thursday. 

Stanfield is recovering from injuries suffered when he was shot by Fresno police, just 12 hours after officers say he murdered a rival gang member in a separate incident.

Following his arrest, gang members said they would retaliate against Fresno police, which led to a major crackdown on gangs.

Police say Stanfield is a suspect in several other shootings.

Stanfield is still recovering from being shot and is not able to communicate fully but was able to give the judge a thumbs up to indicate he wanted to enter a not guilty plea.
