Gun found, but no charges in Walworth shooting
WALWORTH TOWNSHIP Authorities have found a handgun they believe was used in an Aug. 5 shooting on the south side of Delavan Lake, but the two suspects arrested in connection with the incident have not yet been charged with the crime.
Members of the Walworth County Sheriff’s Office Dive Team on Wednesday morning found a handgun in the channel off the south end of the lake, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office. The weapon will be sent it to the state crime lab for analysis, according to the release.
Corey D. Moore-Morrison, 18, of Janesville and Nathan N. Williams, 28, of Darien on Wednesday still were being held in the Walworth County Jail on suspicion of probation violation and still had not made appearances in Walworth County Court.
The sheriff’s office late last week sent reports to the district attorney’s office recommending charges of recklessly endangering safety and armed robbery, Sheriff David Graves said.
The district attorney’s office is reviewing reports and has not yet made a decision on charges, District Attorney Phil Koss said.
Eric Grethe, 20, of Lake Geneva was shot in the back. He was taken to Mercy Hospital in Janesville for surgery to remove the bullet and was released several days later.
Witnesses reported the shooting at 3:46 p.m. Aug. 5 near South Shore Drive and Doris Street in Walworth Township on the south side of Delavan Lake.
Deputies found a man with a gunshot wound to the back in the yard of a nearby home. They searched the area for two men who witnesses said had fled on foot around the southwest end of the lake.
Authorities arrested Moore-Morrison after he walked out of the woods near Viewcrest Drive and Williams after they tracked him into the Ravenswood subdivision.
