RHINELANDER, WI (WTAQ) - A domestic dispute may have prompted a shooting in Rhinelander in which a man was critically injured.
49-year-old Justin Alsteens is hospitalized in critical condition at last word, after being shot in the abdomen on Monday.
His nephew, 23-year-old Marcus Alsteens was charged Wednesday in Oneida County with three felony counts of attempted homicide, aggravated battery, and causing injury by negligent use of a weapon. He’s also facing a misdemeanor count of reckless endangerment.
A judge ordered a $50,000 cash bond.
Marcus Alsteens is due back in court on Monday. He told investigators he did not remember what he and uncle were arguing about – and he claimed he didn’t know he shot the man.
