FDL County Jury Finds So Called “Belt Buckle” Shooter Guilty

A Fond du Lac County jury found the 34-year-old Fond du Lac man accused of firing off a handgun in downtown Fond du Lac at the end of last December guilty of five charges. The jury delivered their verdict yesterday finding William Wilcox guilty of four counts of 1st degree recklessly endangering safety and one count of injury by negligent use of a weapon. Judge Dale English ordered a pre-sentence investigation following the four-day trial.  Wilcox fired off four shots early the morning of December 28th in the area of Main and West 2nd Street in Fond du Lac during an altercation. One of the shots hit a passerby in the belt buckle, which deflected the round. Police were in the area when the shots were fired and quickly apprehended him.
