GLENVILLE, Minn. (KTTC) -- A Glenville man entered a not guilty plea on Thursday for charges against him after he injured a man with gunfire for trying to steal his truck.
38-year-old James Vinton is being charged with 2nd-degree assault with a dangerous weapon and the intentional discharge of a firearm that endangered another.
Vinton told detectives he thought he shot his rifle at the truck's tires as it was leaving his property. He said his goal was to get it to stop.
Police later found a man with gunshot wounds to the back sitting outside the truck, admitting to stealing the truck.
Vinton is set for jury trial in July 2022.
At this time there are no charges against the man who was injured.
