Man arrested after attempted homicide
Police line do not cross

A Livingston man is in custody after he allegedly fired at another person.

According to a press release from Sheriff Nate Dreckman, on June 19, at about 12:37 AM the Grant County Sheriff's Office received a 9-1-1 call about a possible shooting at The Hell Inn Bar and Grill in Livingston.

When deputies and emergency personnel arrived they found a 34 year old male lying outside the door to the bar bleeding from wounds. The male victim was eventually transported by medi helicopter to a hospital for treatment of his injuries.

The victim’s current condition was not released at the time of the release because authorities did not have up-to-date info at that time.

As the incident was investigated, law enforcement learned that a witness saw the suspect pointing and discharging a firearm toward the direction the victim was found. 

Deputies later found the suspect, Todd Holder, 52, of Livingston, at a residence outside of Lancaster where he was taken into custody without incident. Holder was arrested and taken to the Grant County Jail where he will await charges of Attempted 1st Degree Homicide. 

The incident is still under investigation. The Sheriff's Office was assisted by the Livingston Fire Department, Montfort EMS, the Iowa County Sheriff's Office, the Wisconsin State Patrol, and the Wisconsin Department of Justice State Crime Lab. 

The victim's name is being withheld at this time until family has been notified.
