SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – A suspect involved in the deadly Sioux City New Years shooting has pleaded guilty.
Anthony Bauer, 18, pleaded guilty in Woodbury County Court Wednesday to second degree murder, reckless use of a firearm and two counts of reckless use of a firearm. His guilty plea is part of a plea deal regarding his involvement in a fatal New Year’s Day shooting in Sioux City.
Bauer was originally charged with first degree murder, intimidation with a dangerous weapon, armed with intent and three counts of reckless use of a firearm. He pleaded not guilty to his charges in February.
The other shooting suspects, Carlos and Christopher Morales, had pleaded not guilty to their charges earlier this year. Liliana Gutierrez, the alleged driver of the shooting suspects, also pleaded not guilty in February to charges of reckless use of a firearm and intimidation of a dangerous weapon.
On January 1, the Sioux City Police Department received reports of gunfire at a residence on South Walker Street. Officers determined that several shots were fired at the residence and found victims inside the residence, including Mia Kritis, 18, who suffered a fatal gunshot wound.
