Two teens have been charged for their role in a June drive-by shooting.
According to the Green Bay Police Department 17-year-old Myles Schinke and 16-year-old Vance Degeneffe were officially charged with First Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety,
Driving or Operating a Vehicle Without the Owner’s Consent, Knowingly Fleeing or Eluding an Officer, and Possession of a Firearm by an Adjudicated
Delinquent, each as party to the crime, as well as Intentionally Contributing to the Delinquency of a Child.
Schinke and Degeneffe were both detained shortly after the incident, but investigators did not have enough evidence to charge them until last Wednesday.
The drive by on June 9th resulted in a home being hit by the rounds, and although no injuries were reported, a 45-year-old woman, a 38-year-old man, and an 11-year-old girl were all inside the residence.
The target of the shooting was allegedly a 17-year-old boy, who was not hit.
Two teens accused of firing shots into a west-side home early June 9 have been charged as adults, the Green Bay Police Department said Monday.
Myles Schinke, 17, and Vance Degeneffe, 16, have been charged with five felonies each as a party to a crime, including first-degree recklessly endangering safety, possession of a firearm by an adjudicated delinquent and driving a vehicle without the owner’s consent.
Police say the teens were suspected within days of the incident, but they hadn’t collected significant evidence until Oct. 17. Charges were filed Oct. 25, according to court records.
Three residents were inside the North Broadway home at the time of the shooting: a 45-year-old woman, a 38-year-old man and an 11-year old girl. No one was injured in the shooting.
However, during the investigation, police learned the two teens were seeking an unidentified 17-year-old male. The 17-year-old wasn’t at the home at the time of the shooting and is believed to have been the intended target.
“We are fortunate that this act of violence did not result in our community mourning the loss of a family,” said Police Chief Chris Davis.
