Corey Hecht, 32, of Braham is due in court Friday for shooting his friend after a fight that started over which military branch is toughest.  Hecht faces multiple charges including first degree assault for shooting Jeffrey Huebner, who is now listed in fair condition at the St. Cloud Hospital.

Huebner was listed in critical condition following the shooting which occurred on October 20th.

According to the criminal complain, Hecht told police he and Huebner were fighting and he thought Huebner was going to kill him.  Allegedly, Hecht went over to a work bench, grabbed a .357 revolver, loaded it and shot Huebner.

Physicians at the St. Cloud Hospital determined two separate bullet wounds caused Huebner’s two lungs to collapse.  The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension Crime Scene Team determined Hecht fired three shots.  Huebner was hit once in the shoulder area and once under his left arm.

Hecht’s court appearance Friday is scheduled for 9 a.m.

Hecht is charged with three counts of assault.  Count one is for first degree assault and carries a penalty of 20-years in prison and/or a $30,000 fine.  Counts two and three are for second degree assault.  Count two is for second degree assault with a dangerous weapon, punishable by up to seven years in prison and/or a $14,000 fine.  Count three is second degree assault with a dangerous weapon causing substantial bodily harm.  If convicted of count three, Hecht could serve up to 10 years in prison and/or pay a $20,000 fine.
