Man accused in homeless shelter shooting found not competent to stand trial

MADISON, Wis. — A man charged in a shooting at a Madison homeless shelter is being ruled not competent to stand trial.

Court records show 23-year-old Ronald Stephens will be committed for treatment instead of heading to trial on charges of attempted first degree intentional homicide. Stephens is accused of shooting a man multiple times at the temporary homeless shelter on First Street in Madison in March.

According to the criminal complaint, Stephens could be seen on security video shooting another man in the chest at close range. He also allegedly threatened others at the shelter with the gun, asking, “Who else wants it?”

Stephens ran from the shelter, but later turned himself in to police in Milwaukee before being brought back to Dane County.
