Green Bay, Wis. — A 22-year-old Michigan man is accused of firing two shots at a 19-year-old Green Bay man who tried to rob him during a drug deal.

Benjamin Hubbard of Menominee is charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree recklessly endangering safety with a dangerous weapon and possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.

The Green Bay man told police that he and a friend arranged to buy two ounces of marijuana from Hubbard with the intention of stealing it.

A criminal complaint says Hubbard pointed a gun at the man after his friend ran off with one of the bags. It says the man returned the second bag, but Hubbard fired twice at him as he drove off in his vehicle.

Hubbard is being held at Brown County Jail on a $100,000 bond.

It wasn’t immediately known if he has an attorney.
