Greengrass pleads not guilty to charges in deadly south La Crosse shooting

Published

on

A 17-year-old suspect will be scheduled for trial, on charges of attempted homicide and party to felony murder stemming from a deadly shooting near Gundersen Health System in La Crosse.

Jackson Greengrass pled “not guilty” to five criminal charges during a court hearing on Wednesday. Police say Greengrass and another teenager, Storm Vondrashek, tried to shoot 18-year-old Sage Hicke during a confrontation on May 22nd outside an apartment building on 7th Street South.

Hicke is accused of shooting the other two, killing Vondrashek and wounding Greengrass. The felony murder charge against Greengrass has been filed because of his role in the events that led to Vondrashek’s death.

Judge Gloria Doyle turned down defense motions to dismiss the most serious charges against Greengrass. The judge pointed to evidence showing that Greengrass went to the scene of the crime with guns, with an apparent intent to possibly shoot someone.

Greengrass was jailed briefly after the shooting, and was charged weeks after his release with attempted murder. He then avoided capture until July 15th, when he tried to flee after police discovered him riding in a car during a traffic stop at an Onalaska park.
