A Ten Sleep man is awaiting a jury trial for a shooting incident in Manderson that occurred last month.
70-year-old Michael Verry is being held on $500,000 cash bond in Basin on three felony counts after the incident on Feb. 3 at the HiWay Bar and Café.
The Northern Wyoming Daily News reports that Verry was arrested in Billings on February 21, following his release from a Billings hospital. He is currently charged with one count of attempted first-degree murder, one count of attempted second-degree murder and one count of aggravated assault and battery.
According to information from the Big Horn County Sheriff’s office, Verry is accused of opening fire on the bartender and owner of the HiWay Bar and Café in Manderson. No one was injured from the shots, and Verry escaped.
However, after leaving the bar, Verry was involved in a one-vehicle rollover on Highway 31, and was not found until the next morning. He sustained injuries in the crash that required the amputation of his right arm.
Verry has undergone further medical procedures, and will be under guard by Big Horn County law enforcement officers while under medical care and recovery.
