LITTLE ROCK, AR -- The man accused of shooting another man following a road rage incident in Little Rock has pleaded not guilty.

Little Rock Police charged 28-year-old Chris Schnarr with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Arista Aldridge Saturday afternoon at Sixth and Ferry Streets.

Schnarr appeared in court Monday morning, where his bond was set at $100,000 and he entered a plea of not guilty.

According to a report filed by the arresting officer, Schnarr waived his Miranda rights and gave a statement to police after being taken into custody.

Schnarr told police that as he was driving, he and Aldridge were involved in a verbal argument, when Aldridge stopped his tan GMC Jimmy in front of his white Jeep Laredo and got out. Aldridge then walked to Schnarr's driver's side window and stuck his finger in Schnarr's face, according to the report.

The report states Schnarr told police that as Aldridge walked back toward his GMC Jimmy, Schnarr pulled out his semi-automatic pistol and pointed it at him. Then when Aldridge turned around and approached Schnarr's vehicle again, Schnarr fired three shots, striking Aldridge several times.

According to the report, Schnarr told police he shot Aldridge because he was scared.
