Charges filed for shooting
incident in Wyoming, June 28
If you noticed the SWAT team and lots of activity in Stacy Sunday afternoon, June 28, the action was supporting an arrest in connection to a shooting in Wyoming the day before.
Shayde Schwabe, a 24 year old man from North Branch, was driving around Stacy-Wyoming that Saturday looking for the person he suspected of having provided drugs to Schwabe’s friend, who recently came close to overdosing. Schwabe had to administered a nasal antidote to counteract the life threatening dose of barbituate.
According to authorities, Schwabe told investigators he wanted to find the source of the drugs and see a little remorse displayed by the alleged supplier.
Schwabe had brought a 9 mm handgun with him in the car, but said he didn’t go looking to kill anybody. When he came upon the guy he was looking for, inside an address on Fallbrook Avenue in the industrial park in Wyoming, he got no apology nor detected any remorse for the nearly fatal drug episode.
Schwabe said he fired because he was punishing this person (identified only by initials) for not showing that he even cared.
The gunshot victim went to Fairview Emergency Room, where he said to the hospital intake that he was messing around with the firearm and accidentally shot his leg.
ER bullet wounds get reported and a Wyoming officer arrived to speak with the victim. A second officer went to Regions Hospital to interview him after surgery. At this point; the victim confessed he was shot by Schwabe and it was not an accidental discharge.
County and local police picked up Schwabe about 4 p.m. Sunday, June 28 in Stacy. The defendant is charged with second degree assault and his next court appearance is July 22.
