A domestic dispute, a restraining order, and a standoff apparently all led to a shooting in Jackson County last night...
Twenty-five-year-old Robert Schafer of Taylor is being treated at Gundersen Lutheran in La Crosse, after reportedly being shot once at the home of a woman he knows. The woman has a restraining order against Schafer. The shooter, identifed as Jarrod Thompson of Ettrick, says he warned Schafer that he had a gun, but Schafer kept approaching him. Schafer drove away from the house, and was later given a ride to a hospital. No charges have resulted yet from the shooting.
Five years in prison is the sentence given to a La Crosse man convicted of a stabbing last year at John's Bar.
Anquin St. Junious says he takes responsibilty for stabbing and wounding a bartender at John's, apparently by accident, during a fight with another man. St. Junious admits to a drinking problem, and has made a plan for improving himself once he's out of prison. Judge Dale Pasell rejected a proposed two-year prison term, saying the victim could have died, and that St. Junious poses a danger to the public.
