Joshua D. Moggo Arrested – The suspect in the shooting of a woman on Saturday in Chippewa Falls has been identified as a guy. Joshua D. Moggo, 31, of 928 First Avenue, was arrested and lodged in the Chippewa County Jail on suspicion of attempted first-degree intentional homicide, violating a restraining order for domestic abuse, felon in possession of a firearm, endangering safety-reckless use of a firearm, burglary while armed with a dangerous weapon, misdemeanor bail jumping, and domestic abuse with an enhancer in the presence of a child.
Wade Newell, the district attorney for Chippewa County, declined to comment on the matter, claiming that he had spoken with Chippewa Falls police chief Matt Kelm but that, as of Monday afternoon, he hadn’t seen any police records. On Monday, Kelm stated that he planned to provide further information regarding the probe today. Today at 10 a.m. in Chippewa County Court is the following bond hearing. Given that he hasn’t appeared before a judge since his arrest on Saturday night, Newell predicted that the suspect will almost certainly appear by video for the bond hearing. Nearly never do suspects from Chippewa County appear in court for a bond hearing personally.
Information from news release
On Saturday evening, a shooting took place close to the intersection of Birch and Bay streets. At 8:20 p.m., police responded to a report of a lady being shot. When the police arrived on the scene, the suspect had already left. Due to her injuries, the female victim underwent a paramedic evaluation before being sent to a nearby hospital. By 10:30 p.m., police had located and identified Moggo and had him in prison. In a news release issued Sunday morning, Kelm wrote that the suspect and victim knew each other, and the firearm suspected to have been used in the incident had been recovered. In 2015, Moggo was convicted in Eau Claire County Court of kidnapping his son. He was sentenced to five years of probation, which included at least three months in jail and up to another three months at the probation officer’s discretion.
More recently, on January 6, Moggo was accused of causing property damage, domestic abuse, carrying a concealed knife, disorderly conduct, marijuana possession and drug paraphernalia, and bond jumping in Chippewa County Court. In connection with an incident that happened on October 29, he was also charged in November with disorderly behavior and obstructing or resisting an officer. On January 4, according to court documents, a petitioner also received a temporary restraining order against Moggo. On that topic, he was supposed to show up in court today.
