Minn. Man Charged In Shooting That Wounded 2

GRAND RAPIDS (AP) – A northern Minnesota man is charged in a shooting that wounded two people in Grand Rapids Saturday night.
 
Itasca County Attorney John Muhar says 26-year-old William Payne of Bovey (BOH’-vee) was charged Monday with first-degree attempted murder, as well as kidnapping, terroristic threats, burglary, assault and violating an order for protection.
 
The victims, a man and a woman, were in critical condition early Sunday.
 
A woman who had been granted an order for protection against Payne told police she was visiting the man and woman when she heard Payne yell and saw him fire a gun. The witness says Payne pointed the gun at her, dragged her to her car and ordered her to drive. 
 
Payne was in jail with bail set at $1 million without conditions, $750,000 with conditions.
