The man accused of fatally shooting two people at a Jeffersontown Kroger last week appeared in court Friday morning.

Gregory Allen Bush maintained his not-guilty plea after a grand jury indicted him with two counts of murder and one count of attempted murder as well as wanton endangerment.

Bush is accused of shooting Maurice Stallard and Vickie Jones to death on Oct. 24. He’s accused of the attempted murder of a good Samaritan, the man who first confronted Bush. Additionally, he’s charged with wanton endangerment of the good Samaritan’s wife and Stallard’s grandson.

Inside Friday’s courtroom, a large presence of deputies and family members of Stallard and Jones were in attendance.

Police and the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office have identified the shooting as a hate crime, but it will not be tried as one because, under Kentucky’s current statute, homicide is not covered under hate crimes.

The judge kept Bush’s bond at $5 million.
