SEATTLE —

A Seattle parks employee accused of shooting and wounding one co-worker and threatening another pleaded not guilty to assault charges.

Carolyn Piksa was charged with first-degree assault in the March 8 wounding of 65-year-old Bill Keller at a parks maintenance building. She was in King County Superior Court Monday.

KOMO reports ( http://is.gd/4buFkm) her lawyer, John Henry Browne, says a psychological evaluation is clearly warranted.

Prosecutors say Piksa also brandished a gun at a female co-worker. She was charged with second-degree assault in that incident.

Keller is still in satisfactory condition at Harborview Medical Center after being shot in the chest.

Piksa is being held on $1 million bail.
