Brandyn Manuel, right, pleaded not guilty to an attempted murder charge from a December 2018 shooting in Bismarck at an arraignment hearing in the Burleigh County Courthouse on Friday.

An 18-year-old charged with attempted murder in the non-fatal shooting of a woman in December has pleaded not guilty.

Brandyn Manuel appeared in South Central District Court on Friday for an arraignment hearing.

Bismarck police arrested Manuel on Dec. 18 for allegedly shooting Tina Davenport, 18, at the Holiday Park mobile home community. Police previously said there was a disagreement between Manuel and Davenport, which led to the shooting.

Manuel's case was transferred from juvenile court to district court last week.

Assistant Burleigh County State's Attorney Tessa Vaagen said Friday that Manuel is currently being housed at the Youth Correctional Center in Mandan.

However, Vaagen said Manuel, who was 17 years old at the time of the shooting, has since turned 18 and "could technically be transferred to the Burleigh Morton Detention Center."

Vaagen asked South Central District Judge Gail Hagerty to set his bond at $1 million if he were moved to the jail.

"The state does believe that’s an appropriate bond in this case to protect the safety of the community. We obviously have some pretty severe facts here as far as safety is concerned for not only the victim, but the community in general," Vaagen said.

Public defender Thomas Glass asked the judge for a $25,000 bond and said Manuel would remain with his mother in Bismarck if he were able to post bond.

Hagerty set Manuel's bond at $100,000. A trial has been scheduled for May 28-31.
