    A D.C. police officer pleaded not guilty to charges that he fired a gun at a group of people -- some of them transgendered.

    According to court documents, Officer Kenneth Furr climbed on the hood of a car and opened fire on the people inside. One passenger was hurt.

    Furr was off duty at the time last August near First and Pierce streets in Northwest.

    Authorities said Furr had an argument with some of the people earlier that day and that’s what sparked the shooting.

    He's due back in court April 13.
