Shooting suspect now facing fraud charges
Kyle Baker is charged with fraud against a financial institution and several charges of forgery
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -A man linked to a recent shooting incident is now charged with fraud and forgery.
The complaint was filed Tuesday in Eau Claire County court for Kyle Baker, 22.
It says Baker opened a checking account with a local bank in April. In May, it says he deposited five bad checks, totaling $10,000, then, withdrew the money.
In early June, Baker was arrested and charged in a shooting on Eau Claire's north side.
In that case, a witness told the Eau Claire Police Department he was shot by Baker during an argument.
Baker is being held in the Chippewa County jail on the shooting case on a $50,000 dollar cash bond.
A preliminary hearing on the forgery case is scheduled for July 14.
