BOARDMAN, Ore. (AP) -- A suspect in a Boardman, Ore., drive-by shooting faces two counts of attempted murder.

The East Oregonian reports (http://bit.ly/qDn37m ) 18-year-old Gilberto Garcia has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Police responded to a report of a shooting on Wednesday in which shooters missed the would-be targets, a man and a woman.

Police say Garcia knew the woman.

Garcia and a 17-year-old boy were arrested on suspicion of the shooting by Thursday night.

Morrow County District Attorney Justin Nelson says he hasn't yet brought formal charges against the 17-year-old.
