Joel Maikara Amohanga (29) appeared by audio visual link in the Invercargill High Court today where he is accused of attempting to murder Kane Harris Joseph Johnston-Walters on November 9.
Amohanga also faced four District Court charges — unlawful firearm possession, discharge of a firearm near a dwelling, threatening to kill and assault.
Those counts were transferred to the High Court and Amohanga denied all charges brought against him.
Crown prosecutor Mike Mika said to Justice Cameron Mander the threatening to kill and assault counts were in relation to a different complainant than Johnston-Walter.
However, all matters will be heard at High Court.
The appearance followed an incident last year in which police and the armed offenders squad were called to an address in Brown St, Strathern.
There, they found a man with an apparent gunshot wound.
A jury trial was scheduled to February next year and Justice Mander remanded Amohanga until his next appearance in May.
