Trial begins for man charged in Wyoming hospital shooting

The trial has started for a man accused of opening fire in a Wyoming hospital.

The Casper Star-Tribune reported Monday the defense attorney for 20-year-old Mitchell Taylor is preparing to argue that the two counts of aggravated assault don’t match his client’s actions.

Taylor pleaded guilty last week to property destruction in the shooting at the Wyoming Medical Center in March.

Prosecutors say he fire seven shots after entering the Casper hospital. No one was injured.

Natrona County District Attorney Dan Itzen told the court that Taylor provoked fear and caused the emergency department to go into lockdown.

Taylor has said that he was high on LSD and was trying to seek medical help.
