An 18-year-old, charged with attempted murder in a deadly gunfire incident, could enter a negotiated plea soon.
Jackson Greengrass was one of two people shot last May outside a 7th Street apartment building in La Crosse.
The other shooting victim, 15-year-old Storm Vondrashek, was killed.
Greengrass is accused of threatening to shoot Sage Hicke, the man suspected of shooting him and Vondrashek.
Defense attorney Bernardo Cueto on Wednesday told La Crosse Judge Gloria Doyle that he’s working with the district attorney’s office on a plea agreement to avoid a trial.
The judge scheduled a court hearing in a few weeks to check on progress in negotiating a plea.
Hicke goes on trial at the end of July.
