Grand Rapids man appears in court in shooting death of friend

Posted:
WOOD COUNTY (WAOW) -

A Grand Rapids man made his first appearance in court in the shooting death of his friend.

22-year-old Tyler Enkro now faces two felony charges, including homicide by intoxicated use of a firearm.

Investigators say Enkro had been drinking when he shot Nick Hoffmann in December. Enrko told officers it was an accident.

"This case is so tragic. What we hope and what Tyler really hopes is that we want to get this over with and through the court as quickly as possible. He wakes up every day and goes to bed every day and thinks about Nick," Tyler Enkro's attorney Chris Van Wagner said.

The DA's office did not want to comment on camera, but tells Newsline 9 that it took months to charge Enkro to make sure the case was looked at thoroughly.
