Eau Claire (WQOW) – Charges have been filed against the two men involved in a shooting last month in Eau Claire.

Damon Clark and Marcus Wells were each charged with first degree recklessly endangering safety Tuesday.

According to the criminal complaint, the two told police the incident was a drug deal gone bad.

They told police they went to Revere Street on September 15 to buy marijuana, but said the dealer tried to rob them instead.

They were able to take the man’s gun and a pound of marijuana and ran off. The next day, Wells said the dealer showed up at his home and tried to kick down the door.

Wells and Clark returned to Revere Street that night with guns hoping to scare the man.

Clark said when they arrived, 10 people came out and the argument escalated. Wells and Clark each claimed the other person, and not them, fired shots at the people. One woman had minor injuries. No one else was hurt.

Another suspect, Robert Thomas, was also taken into custody in connection to the incident. He has yet to be charged.

Clark is being held on $20,000 cash bond. He returns to court next Tuesday. Signature bond was set at $10,000 for Wells. He’s back in court in November.
