Investigators say Fohrenkam initially denied involvement, but surveillance video shows him running away from the scene after the shooting.

Fohrenkam’s jury trial is now scheduled to begin on Jan. 17, 2023.

According to a motion filed Monday, Fohrenkam requested the trial be moved due to needing to receive and review new evidence, which hadn’t been disclosed by the state and limited his defense.
