TULSA, Okla. – Not guilty by reason of insanity, that’s the plea entered into court Wednesday for the man accused of shooting into a crowded Tulsa plaza last year.

The suspect, 24-year-old Andrew Dennehy is charged with shooting with intent to kill

Prosecutors said a barefoot Dennehy wandered into the plaza and opened fire, hitting a sheriff’s deputy and a bystander who both survived.

Wednesday Dennehy’s attorney asked the judge for permission for his client to undergo a psychological examination.

His family said he’s a paranoid schizophrenic plagued by bizarre thoughts and delusions.

Prosecutors said he’s bluffing.  

The trial is scheduled to begin Oct. 7 and both sides said it will be a difficult case.
