LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - The man accused of wounding three people in a shooting last August appears in a La Crosse County courtroom following his extradition from Florida.

33-year-old Almondo Baker faces one count of Attempted First Degree Intentional Homicide, Use of a Dangerous Weapon, for the August 31 shooting that wounded three people at a home on Farnam Street.  The criminal complaint against Baker details an argument that escalated into what one witness told police as "8-10 shots" fired. 

After the shooting, Baker fled the area.  He was arrested more than three weeks later in Ft. Myers, Florida.

He was extradited back from Florida to the La Crosse County Jail on Thursday.

During his court appearance on Friday, Judge Elliot Levine allowed Baker the possibility of release if he could come up with a $100,000 cash bond.

Baker returns to court next Friday (1/17).
