Man Faces Murder Charge In Woman’s Shooting In Eagle River

A 32-year-old man is facing a murder charge in the shooting death of a 56-year-old woman in Eagle River.

Police say James Andrew Baker also faces two attempted murder counts after two others were wounded early Sunday morning. He is being held without bail.

Investigators say June Mary McCarr was found dead in a vehicle.

Police say the incident started when the vehicle owned by Baker was parked with six people inside using drugs. At some point for an undetermined reason Baker allegedly started shooting at the others.

All of the occupants then fled on foot except for McCarr. The two who were wounded were hospitalized in stable condition.

Police say Baker was later given a ride by a motorist and they’re hoping to make contact with that driver.
