6-6-14 belt buckle shooter convicted

A Fond du lac man has been convicted  in a shooting incident where one of the bullets deflected off an innocent bystander’s belt buckle.  A Fond du lac jury deliberated less than two hours Thursday afternoon before finding William Wilcox guilty on four counts of first degree recklessly endangering safety and one count  of causing injury by negligient use of a weapon.  A pre-sentence investigation will be ordered.  The incident happened last December around bar closing time  in downtown Fond du Lac.  Police say an innocent bystander was fortunate to escape serious injury when one of the four bullets fired deflected off his belt buckle.
