MARQUETTE - A Wisconsin man involved in a shooting in the Birchgrove Mobile Home Community was arraigned in Marquette County District Court Tuesday on one charge of first degree home invasion.
Jesse Paul Homa, 24, of Sayner, Wis., is being held in Marquette County Jail on a $25,000 cash surety bond.
A preliminary examination is scheduled for 10 a.m. June 4 in district court.
Homa was arrested early Tuesday morning following an alleged breaking and entering incident at a residence in the Birchgrove community.
According to the Marquette City Police Department, Homa was pounding on the door of the residence at 500 Pioneer Road, No. 23, and kicking and punching vehicles outside that residence.
Police said Homa kicked in the side door of the residence and entered the home, prompting the home owner to shoot at Homa three times with a .22-caliber handgun. Homa was hit twice in the legs before fleeing the scene.
Police said Homa was found a short time later and taken to Marquette General Hospital, where he was treated and released.
Police are not releasing the name of the home owner.
An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
