Bronx, N.Y. resident Jason Gonzalez has been charged with attempted murder and nine other offenses in connection with the shooting of Arizona Wildcats forward Kevin Parrom.

Gonzalez, 19, was arraigned Sunday and faces a pretrial hearing on Wednesday in Bronx Supreme Court. His bail was set at $25,000 and he is being detained at Vernon C. Bain Center in Bronx. He has pleaded not guilty.

New York Police had said Sunday that Gonzalez was arrested on suspicion of  assault, burglary and criminal possession of a weapon in connection with the Sept. 24 incident. But the complaint issued Oct. 1 listed attempted murder as well as three charges of assault, two of burglary, two of trespass, as well as charges of harassment and being menacing in the second degree.

The deposition stated that Parrom told police the defendant and another, unapprehended male were acting together when they kicked open Parrom's bedroom door, then the defendant pointed a silver firearm at Parrom.

Police said Parrom said a struggle ensued and that the defendant pulled the gun several times, hitting Parrom once above his right knee.

Police said Parrom told them the gunshot wound caused him "bleeding and substantial pain, as well as annoyance, alarm and fear for his physical safety."

Parrom returned to Tucson less than three days after the shooting and has begun rehabilitation. UA has not specified the nature of his injury and coach Sean Miller said only that much more would be known in a month about his ability to return to basketball.
