Cheyenne, WY (AP) -
A Goshen County prosecutor has charged a Colorado man with attempted murder in a shooting last month that authorities say left a Hawk Springs man paralyzed.

Goshen County Attorney Patrick Korell filed a complaint charging 51-year-old William Eugene Schlager Jr., of Fort Collins., Colorado, with attempted first-degree murder and four other felony counts.

The complaint charges Schlager shot Timothy Toedter, of Hawk Springs, on April 26. Goshen County Sheriff Donald J. Murphy says the shooting left Toedter paralyzed.

Schlager hasn't appeared in court yet and no attorney has filed notice of representing him.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol arrested Schlager after the shooting in Laramie County. The patrol has said Schlager was wounded in an exchange of gunfire with state troopers but no word on his condition was immediately available Thursday.
