WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) – A Wausau man charged with shooting at a SUV early Sunday morning is being held on a 250-thousand dollar cash bond.

Ka Yeng Xiong is in jail, charged with two counts each of attempted homicide, recklessly endangering safety, and criminal damage to property.

Police say Xiong got into a dispute with a group of people at a tavern early Sunday morning. He went home, and the people followed him. Xiong came out of his house with a handgun and started shooting at their vehicle, shattering the glass, and hitting two other homes in the process.

The SUV fled the scene and was later found with a window shattered on 28th and Stewart. Xiong was later arrested at his home on the 1700 block of Pardee Street by the SWAT team around noon on Sunday. 

Police say the owner of the Paradox Bar is cooperating with law enforcement, and may have other evidence including video surveillance at the scene. Police are still trying to determine what lead to the shooting.

The case is still under investigation. A preliminary hearing will be scheduled at a later date.
