13-year-old facing charge in case of shots fired in La Crosse



Reports of gunfire in La Crosse this month have led to at least one arrest.

On Thursday, police announced that a 13-year-old was taken into custody for allegedly firing a gun last Monday in the 500 block of Hood Street, near Gundersen. The suspect faces two charges of reckless endangerment, and one charge of weapon possession by an underage person.

Police have been alerted to repeated claims of gunshots in the city during June, but the incidents have not led to hearings in criminal court yet.

Anyone with more information is asked to call La Crosse police at 608-782-7575.

    The head of the nation’s health department wants stricter gun laws:
    To drive down gun deaths, Murthy calls on the U.S. to ban automatic rifles, introduce universal background checks for purchasing guns, regulate the industry, pass laws that would restrict their use in public spaces and penalize people who fail to safely store their weapons.
    So this kid had a gun, where did he buy it?
    Oh wait, he was not old enough to legally purchase one. Against the the law to have one in a public space? This kid did not care.
    Wake up, we need to to enforce our present laws and punish people who commit crimes with a gun.
    These are not “gun crimes” as the liberals would say. Guns can’t commit crimes. PEOPLE commit crimes.
