LA CROSSE (WKOW) – On Wednesday night, there will be a
community candlelight service in La Crosse for a 20-year-old woman who was
fatally shot earlier this week on the 700 block of Division Street.
Police say Sara Hougom called 911 at about 4:20 p.m. Monday
after she was shot. She died a short time later at a local hospital.
Investigators are calling Hougom's death a homicide and are looking into
whether the shooting is connected to another shooting about 20 minutes earlier in
a different part of the city. Four gun shots were fired into a home. No one was hit,
but bullets broke two windows.
Cindy Lisney, Hougom's aunt says her niece was an energetic,
compassionate and good-hearted person. Hougom went to Western Technical College
part-time and worked at Manny's Mexican Cocina in Onalaska. She graduated from
West Salem High School in 2009.
