GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – Details have been released regarding the incident that required one man to get his leg partially amputated and another getting a gunshot wound.

According to the criminal complaint, on May 27 around 10:15 p.m. officers responded to a weapons call at American Foods. When officers arrived they found a man lying on the ground with pools of blood around him. Jenee Walker was yelling frantically and said someone ran over the man’s leg.

Officers who were on the scene said that the man’s leg was completely shredded and a mixture of skin and muscle tissue was twisted and ripped. It was also stated that the man’s bone had been completely shattered.

The man told officers that he had shot at the vehicle that had him and that his gun was inside his truck.

Walker was later interviewed by authorities and said that the man who was hit by the vehicle and herself are boyfriend and girlfriend. Walker stated she had told Shenelle McGrew to put bones coming off the line into the boxes, not the baskets.

When Walker and her boyfriend were leaving work, McGrew approached them and a fight ended up breaking out. Walker says that McGrew was on her phone and could be heard saying ‘they right here babe, they right here.”

As the three were fighting, McGrew’s husband (Tommy Cross) came out of nowhere and almost hit the man. The vehicle backed up and eventually hit the man and Walker saw her boyfriend’s leg was split open and was knocked to the ground.

The man had an initial amputation surgery but needed additional surgery to raise the amputation point above the knee. Originally the surgery was below the knee on the leg.

Authorities also spoke with McGrew and Cross and they stated that the man and Walker were harassing McGrew at work. It was also mentioned that McGrew brought the issue up to HR and she said they told her to ‘suck it up.’

McGrew stated that prior to the incident she walked up to Walker to try to talk to her, but Walker’s boyfriend immediately became involved and she saw a gun in his front waistband.

Cross stated that the man hit his wife in the head with the gun and feared that she would be executed so he drove and hit the man with his car. Cross was not initially at American Foods, but when he heard what was happening while he was on the phone with McGrew he immediately left his house and drove to his wife.

Cross is charged with First Degree Reckless Injury and if convicted could face not more than 25 years in prison.

The man who was run over and had his leg amputated currently has not been identified and there is no information on if he will face charges.
