Jury picked for attempted murder trial in Wausau

Posted:

WAUSAU (WAOW) - A jury was selected Monday for the trial of Wausau man accused of firing numerous gunshots at a car in an early-morning dispute in a Wausau neighborhood about a year ago.

Ka Yeng Xiong, 30, was charged with several felonies, including two counts of attempted first-degree intentional homicide and two counts of recklessly endangering safety.

No one was hit by gunfire in the shootings but one person was injured by flying glass, investigators said.

Xiong's trial started Monday and is scheduled for four days, according to Marathon County online court records.

The shooting stemmed from a confrontation outside the Paradox Bar on Third Street in Wausau and escalated when a vehicle drove by Xiong's home, police said.

Xiong was accused of firing at least seven rounds from a 9mm gun at the vehicle, which contained two people, police said.
