Two men accused of being a party to a shotgun being fired in Rotorua's Kuirua Park in April while it was packed with marketgoers have elected for a jury trial.

Appearing separately in the Rotorua District Court on Thursday, Chadwick Matapuku and Cody Fane pleaded not guilty to various firearms-related charges and were remanded in custody by Judge Kim Saunders.

They will reappear on July 5 for a case review, alongside co-accused Daniel McMeeking, who has also elected for a trial by jury.

Matapuku pleaded guilty to a charge of disorderly behaviour, allegedly relating to the same April 22 incident, and was further remanded on that count.
