Friend Fatally Shot
WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. (AP) – A Wood County man accused of accidentally shooting his friend while intoxicated has pleaded no contest to a felony charge in an agreement with prosecutors. Twenty-two-year-old Tyler Enkro entered the plea to homicide by intoxicated use of firearm in court Thursday. A second felony was dismissed. A criminal complaint says Enkro called 911 on Dec. 18, 2011, saying he had accidentally shot his friend, 31-year-old Nick Hoffman. The Wisconsin Rapids man had suffered a gunshot wound to the neck and later died at a Marshfield hospital. Prosecutors say Enkro’s blood alcohol content at the time was 0.17 percent, which is more than twice the legal limit to drive. WSAW-TV (http://bit.ly/Z2hklM ) says Enkro will be sentenced May 13.
