Judge: 28 years in prison for Wausau shooter


WAUSAU (WAOW) - A 31-year-old Wausau man was sentenced to 28 years in prison Wednesday for firing numerous gunshots at a car in an early-morning dispute that rocked a Wausau neighborhood last year.

A jury convicted Ka Yeng Xiong of five felonies, including two counts of attempted first-degree intentional homicide and two counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety, following a trial in August.

Marathon County Circuit Judge Greg Grau sentenced Xiong to prison for all five felony convictions, handing down prison terms ranging from five years to 28 years for each conviction, according to online court records. But Grau ordered the sentences to be served at the same time as the first 28-year term.

The judge ordered that after Xiong is released from prison, he must serve 12 years of extended supervision, court records said.

The judge granted Xiong credit for 472 days that he has already spent in jail.

No one was hit by gunfire in the shootings but one person was injured by flying glass, investigators said.

The shooting stemmed from a confrontation outside the Paradox Bar on Third Street in Wausau and escalated when a vehicle drove by Xiong's home, police said.

Xiong fired at least seven rounds from a 9mm gun at a car carrying two people during the confrontation, police said.
