Camden Township Attempted Murder 30 May 14

A rural Carver County man is facing attempted murder charges after allegedly shooting at his neighbors while they planted corn. A 40-year-old man and his 11-year-old son were in a tractor on their farm in Camden Township just north of Norwood Young America when both of the tractor’s windows suddenly shattered. 51-year-old Kenneth Allen Walsh was arrested shortly after that, and reportedly admitted to using a scoped rifle to fire at the two because he “was upset with them.” The victim has been identified as Bill Dvorak, who suffered minor cuts to his neck from the broken glass. His son was uninjured. Walsh has been charged with 1st and 2nd-degree attempted murder, and remains in custody in the Carver County Jail with bail set at $1-million. He was making an appearance in court this (FRI) morning.
