On October 26, 2018, at 8:10 a.m. the Grant County Sheriff's Office responded to 11134 Hickory Road in Bloomington Township. The investigation shows that Robert J. Steiger, Jr., 26, of this address, was awoke by a family member who was operating a piece of machinery near the residence. Steiger exited his residence armed with a shotgun and confronted his brother, a juvenile male aged 15. Steiger was upset that his brother had woke him, so he approached the juvenile male and discharged a 12 gauge shotgun near him while he was on the machinery. Steiger then went back into the residence and retrieved more ammunition before exiting the property with the shotgun and ammunition. Steiger was located a short time later in the City of Prairie Du Chien where he was taken into custody. Steiger is being held at the Grant County Jail on the tentative charge of 1st Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety
