(ABC 6 News) - A Rochester teen accused of shooting his father following an argument entered a not guilty plea Tuesday.

18-year-old Colby James Cleveland is charged with 2nd-degree attempted murder and 2nd-degree assault with a dangerous weapon causing substantial bodily harm. 

Rochester police say on March 19, Cleveland shot his father in the leg following an argument about rent at Villages at Essex Park apartments in northwest Rochester.

According to court documents, the father was shot in the leg, but did not know if he was hit until he felt the blood running down his leg. Cleveland began talking, but all victim could remember was "I'm gonna kill you." Cleveland turned himself into Rochester police a few days after the shooting.

A trial date for Cleveland has not been scheduled.
