PHOENIX (AP) - An Oct. 15 trial date has been set for a 16-year-old boy accused of killing a Maricopa County jail officer who authorities say was randomly targeted when he was shot in his driveway.

Leonard Moreno has pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree murder, aggravated assault and drive-by-shooting in the Aug. 8 death of 27-year-old detention officer Jorge Vargas.

Vargas was attacked while working on his car outside his home.

Investigators don't know what exactly happened in the driveway before Vargas was shot.

Vargas worked for the sheriff's Custody Support Bureau in a jail food factory.
