ST. LOUIS (AP) — A man accused of killing four people in the St. Louis area and two in a Kansas suburb of Kansas City has pleaded not guilty to a federal gun charge.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 26-year-old Perez Deshay Reed entered the plea Tuesday in U.S. District Court in St. Louis.

He remains jailed without bond. The federal charge accuses Reed of transporting a gun across state lines with the intent to commit a felony.

Reed is accused of fatally shooting two people in St. Louis city, two in St. Louis County, and two in Kansas City, Kansas.

The shootings prompted the FBI to refer to him as an alleged serial killer.
