31-year-old Deandrew Grant was arranged on the charges Wednesday. The shooting occurred in an area of downtown La Crosse populated by multiple bars and restaurants. The charges say security camera footage in 100 block of 3rd St. South captured Grant and another man appearing to engage in a fight outside of a downtown bar. Grant is seen fleeing the area on foot.

Moments later, a black SUV is seen driving the wrong way on the one way street and windows of surrounding bars and restaurants are seen being broken out by apparent gunfire, the complaint says. One of the gunshot victims said they saw a group of people appear to have “shooed” Grant from the area about 5-10 minutes before the gunfire.

The initial report from La Crosse Police indicated six people were hit by the gunfire, however the charges say investigators believe seven people were hit in the shooting. An investigator spoke with six of the victims, all of whom appeared to have been bystanders to the shooting and altercation based on statements given to law enforcement listed in court documents.

Four of the victims were hit by gunshots while they were inside of a pizza restaurant. One of the victims was at a neighboring bar and restaurant and one victim was on the sidewalk at the time of the gunfire, according to the charges. Police observed pooling blood in the area of the shooting along with broken out windows and bullet holes in a nearby vehicle and building.
