Wyoming man pleads not guilty to hospital shooting charges

Posted in

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — A man accused of shooting at two people in a Wyoming hospital has pleaded not guilty.

Twenty-year-old Mitchell D. Taylor entered the pleas Wednesday to two counts of aggravated assault, one of property damage and one of possession of a deadly weapon with unlawful intent.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports a group of supporters accompanied Taylor in court in Casper.

Taylor allegedly told police he took LSD before driving to Wyoming Medical Center in Casper to seek help because he felt suicidal. Nobody was hurt when Taylor allegedly fired a handgun at a housekeeper and doctor early in the morning on March 4.

Police used a Taser to subdue Taylor in a tunnel beneath the hospital.

Taylor faces up to 35 years in prison if convicted on all counts.
