Fry faces homicide charge for stepfather’s shooting in La Crosse



A La Crosse man accused in the shooting death of his stepfather is being held without bond in the La Crosse County jail.


Alan Fry did not appear in court on Friday, so he has another court hearing on Monday. The 41-year-old Fry allegedly killed his stepfather following an argument Thursday night at a house on Farnam Street, allegedly firing about 10 gunshots during the incident. A criminal complaint says Fry also broke open a bathroom door, while his mother was inside the bathroom.

Police say Fry and the victim lived together at a home on Denton Street, where a fire occurred late on Thursday night. Fry is being charged with 1st degree murder, and felony possession of a firearm, but he is not charged in connection with the house fire.
