A full year after being arrested for a La Crosse murder, Shavonte Thompson has finally been bound over for trial in the case.
Thompson is accused of shooting 18-year-old Javier Ayers, also known as Javier Hall, in an alley near Copeland Park in November of 2019.
He was captured in Illinois the following January.
During a court hearing on Wednesday, La Crosse police investigator Andrew Rosenow said Thompson allegedly rode to and from the shooting scene in an SUV with other people, and three of those people have identified Thompson as the shooter.
Video of the murder showed a man, believed to be Thompson, getting out of the SUV, and firing one shot at Ayers before going back in. Two vehicles went to the scene, and drove away quickly after the shooting.
