UPDATE: Casper Shooting Suspects Charged With Robbery, Drug Dealing
Three men were charged Monday with crimes related to a shooting early Friday morning that hospitalized one man whose injuries are non life threatening.
The shooting happened at a garage storage unit on Landmark Lane. The victim was shot three times and is in stable condition.
Mason C. Fletcher, 18, Taylor J. Whiting, 25, and Steven Spearman, 18, heard the charges against them during their initial appearances in Natrona County Circuit Court on Monday.
All were charged with felonies and misdemeanors. Because of the felony charges, they did not enter pleas before Judge Brian Christensen. They will have preliminary hearings soon to determine whether there is probable cause to send them to district court for trial.
Fletcher was charged with felony counts of delivery of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance.
