Bond Set for Man that Hid a Gun for His Son after Brookfield Hotel Shooting

The father charged with helping his teenage son after a hotel shooting appeared in court on Monday.

A Waukesha county judge ordered a five-thousand dollar signature bond for Charles Swanagan.             

According to the criminal complaint, Swanagan attempted to throw away the gun police say his son Nico used in the January shooting.

It happened at the Embassy Suites in Brookfield.

Two people were shot during a party at the hotel.

Swanagan's preliminary hearing is expected in April.
