A teenager wounded in a deadly shooting in La Crosse was back in the county jail, facing murder counts, as two other teens face charges of helping him avoid capture.
Jackson Greengrass is facing several charges, including felony murder, attempted homicide and resisting arrest.
The 17-year-old Greengrass, along with 15-year-old Storm Vondrashek, were shot during a confrontation outside an apartment building near Gundersen Health System on May 22.
Vondrashek died shortly after being shot. Sage Hicke, 18, is suspected of firing the shot that killed Vondrashek — and turned himself into police a few weeks later — but Greengrass is accused of helping cause Vondrashek’s death by being a party to the crime.
Greengrass is also accused of attempted murder, because prosecutors believe he and Vondrashek tried to shoot Hicke, who said he shot them in self defense.
Greengrass was released from jail on bond after a court hearing on the day of the shooting, but that was before police had all the details worked on on the events of the shooting, so the La Crosse County District Attorney’s office was unable to charge him until June with attempting to shoot Hicke.
Greengrass avoided arrest again until early Friday morning, when Onalaska police pulled over a suspicious car seen at Rowe Park after hours.
A passenger later identified as Greengrass ran. Police saw him again an hour later, riding a bike and captured him. He was booked in the La Crosse jail, and Judge Scott Horne set his bond at $75,000.
The two other people in the car at Rowe Park, Jakob Moran and Sarah Thesing, are charged with aiding a felon by having Greengrass with them. Moran claimed he didn’t know Greengrass, and said the man just asked him for a ride shortly before police came along.
Greengrass is due back in court on July 22. Moran remains in jail on a $10,000 bond. Thesing was released on a signature bond.
