A 44-year-old Detroit man is charged with first degree murder in the Tuesday shooting death of jewelry store founder Dan "Hutch" Hutchinson.

Roy Donta Larry on Friday pleaded not guilty to the killing in Oak Park and was denied bond, Fox 2 reports. He's also charged with firearm possession.

Police have said Hutchinson was targeted and that his wife was in the car. She was unhurt when Larry allegedly peppered their SUV with more than a dozen bullets.

Police still have not revealed a motive. They've said the gunman acted alone.
