LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW)— A La Crosse County Circuit Court judge set a $5,000 cash bond for Brian Carr, 29, the man arrested Wednesday in connection with a shooting at apartments on the south side of La Crosse.
Carr is charged with reckless engenderment, disorderly conduct and possession of marijuana.
Police were called around 2:15 p.m., on Wednesday, to 1321 South 4th Street after a neighbor called police to report gunfire.
Kayla Nelson, lives across the street from the apartments, while her two-year-old son played in the front yard, she heard one shot fired and saw two men arguing in the street. She called 911, but the two men left the area before officers arrived.
La Crosse Police Lt. Pat Hogan confirmed that one shot was fired at a person during the argument.
As police arrived at the apartment building, other officers were involved in a chase of a vehicle believed to have come from the scene. Officers from the La Crosse Police Department and Sheriff's Department pursued the vehicle through La Crosse, up Bliss Road and into a mobile home park at the top of the bluff off of County Highway F, where Carr was arrested.
Police said they found Redondo M. Shelley, 31. He is believed to be the second man involved in an argument out in front of 1321 South 4th Street Wednesday afternoon.
According to Sgt. Randy Rank, although a shot was fired at Shelley, he was not hit or injured in the incident. Both men fled the area after the shooting.
Lt. Hogan said community is not in danger at this time.
But Nelson said she is still concerned because this isn't the first time there have been problems at those apartments.
"We own our home so we can't sign a new lease and pack up and move so the best of our abilities we have to try to end what's going on," Nelson said.
