Duane Strelow Jr. made an initial appearance in court on Monday afternoon.

A $2,000 signature bond was set for Strelow, with Judge Gonzalez ordering no contact with the residents of the 8th Street S. home. Strelow's next court appearance is set for Monday, August 21.

Clifton Traywick is now in stable condition at a local hospital.


La Crosse Police have arrested one man on attempted burglary charges after he and another man tried to break into a home Friday morning in La Crosse.   Another suspect is hospitalized in critical condition after he was shot by the owner of the home. 

The homeowner called police just before 7 am to report that he had fired shots at two men who were breaking into his home on 8th Street South in La Crosse.

Friday afternoon Police arrested 22 year old Duane Strelow Jr. at his home in the Town of Campbell. 

The other man believed to be involved, 21 year old Clifton Traywick, is hospitalized in critical condition.


La Crosse Police are investigating an early morning shooting on La Crosse's south side.

At 6:55 a.m. Friday morning, police received a call of people breaking into the residence at 417 8th Street South. The resident told police that two or three people broke in, and he shot the intruders with a pistol, but he did not know if he hit anyone.

"Just a short time later we also received a secondary call from one of our local medical institutions that they had received an individual who had come in with a gun shot wound and that they were tending to that individual," said Sgt. Tom Walsh with the La Crosse Police Department.

No one is in custody, and there is no further information on the person shot.

We will provide more updates as they become available.
