The shooting was right outside of Durant Park on the Fourth of July.
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A city man has been charged in the fatal July 4 shooting of 39-year-old Paul E. Henry.
J.C. Chadwell, 39, of Seymour Street on Monday entered a plea of not guilty in Berkshire Superior Court on a single count of murder. Chadwell is accused of shooting Henry on John Street on July 4, 2017.
Police responded to a report of a shooting in the area of Durant Park around 11:30 on the night of July 4. Henry was pronounced dead by emergency medical technicians on the scene. An autopsy ruled the cause of death as a gunshot wound to the chest.
Judge Mark Pasquariello on Monday ordered Chadwell to be held at the Berkshire County House of Correction without the right to bail. A pre-trial hearing is scheduled for March 14.
Chadwell was arrested on a warrant by police on Friday night. The shooting apparently was related to a dispute between the two men about several years' old debt. 
The investigation was conducted by members of the Pittsfield Police Department Detective Bureau with assistance from the Berkshire County Sheriff's Department, State Police detectives assigned to the District Attorney's Office, members of the Berkshire Law Enforcement Task Force and the Massachusetts State Police Firearms Identification Section.
