(2/19/13) A shooting last weekend outside an Eau Claire tavern has two people – a man and a woman – facing attempted homicide charges.

 Eau Claire police were called to the Idlewood bar at about 1:30 a.m. Saturday on a report of shots fired.  Witnesses told officers two people in the bar got into a fight and it spilled outside.  One of the two fighters fired six shots, with five hitting the side of the building.  Nobody was hit and no injuries were reported.  The sixth shot entered the living room of an apartment above the bar.  Police have arrested 36 year old Rodney Craig and 32 year old Shirley Heath of Eau Claire.  Investigators say a handgun and other physical evidence linking them to the crime has been recovered.
