Man accused of murdering security guard at parking garage enters not guilty plea

St. Joseph County Jail
Not guilty is the plea from a man accused of shooting and killing a security guard at a parking garage in South Bend.
It was last week when Robert Pulliam, Jr. was shot and killed while asking Derrick Pratcher to leave the area.
Investigators say Pratcher had been loitering around the parking garage and even looking in the windows of some parked cars. As Pulliam turned his back for a moment, police say Pratcher shot and killed him.
It was a cell phone picture of Pratcher’s license plate on his car that he took before he died that led police to arrest Pratcher.
Pratcher is due back in court for an initial hearing on April 12.

Not guilty very interesting indeed ! How does he explain the ballistic evidence at the crime scene of the murder ? The 9 mm shell casings match the gun that was in his possession at the time of arrest. I hope this does go to full trial and not plea bargained by the Prosecutor. The St. Joseph County prosecutor needs to get tougher on criminals.
