NASHVILLE (AP) — An attorney has entered a not guilty plea for a white Nashville police officer indicted on a first-degree murder charge in the fatal shooting of an armed black man.

Defense attorney David Raybin entered the plea Wednesday for officer Andrew Delke in Davidson County Criminal Court. Delke didn't appear in court for Wednesday's arraignment.

Delke shot 25-year-old Daniel Hambrick from behind during a foot chase in July.

The defense has argued Delke followed his training and state law in shooting after he saw Hambrick had a gun. District Attorney General Glenn Funk has said Delke could have sought cover and called for help.

A grand jury indicted Delke in January.

Delke's case is slated for another hearing Tuesday.
