A Wisconsin Rapids man convicted of accidentally shooting his friend in December of 2011 will spend one year in jail and 10 years on probation.
During a plea deal in March, Tyler Enkro, 23, pleaded no contest to one count of homicide by intoxicated use of firearm. As result a charge of homicide by firearm while intoxicated was dismissed.
According to a press release, the shooting happened just before 3 am on December 18, 2011 at a home on 22nd Street North in the Town of Grand Rapids.
When police arrived on scene, they found Nick Hoffmann, 31, with a gunshot wound to the neck. Hoffmann was airlifted to a Marshfield hospital where he later died.
Enkro was initially arrested for recklessly endangering safety. The charges were amended following Hoffmann's death.
The judge also ordered Enkro to do 100 hours of community service and visit Hoffmann's grave once a year on the anniversary of his death.
Hoffmann's mother spoke in support of Enkro, asking the judge not to send him to jail.
