La Crosse Police arrest teen for shooting death of 15-year-old Storm Vondrashek

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – La Crosse Police arrested an 18-year-old in connection with the May homicide of 15-year-old Storm Vondrashek.

Sage Hicke of Ontario, Wisconsin, turned himself in Friday, June 3. Prosecutors could charge Hicke with first-degree intentional homicide as soon as June 6.

According to investigators, who say over the past two weeks they’ve spoken with numerous witnesses, there was an argument between two groups of people over the phone on May 22.

The group at a La Crosse apartment complex, including Hicke, told the other group their location. That second group, including Vondrashek and 17-year-old Jackson Greengrass, drove to the apartment on 7th Street South, got out of their vehicle, and waited outside the apartment.

Hicke came outside and the two groups began to fight. That’s when police say Hicke shot Vondrashek and Greengrass.

Police recovered several shell casings and a gun at the scene. Investigators say that the firearm was not the murder weapon. They believe it belonged to someone else involved in the confrontation.

Police arrested Greengrass on May 23. He is charged with three misdemeanors: Endangering Safety by Use of a Dangerous Weapon, Disorderly Conduct While Armed, and Possession of a Weapon by a Person Under 18. Greengrass is free on bond.

La Crosse Police tell News 8 Now they are still investigating and will release more information at a later time.
