Killed – Johnita Larie Clemons (Des Moines, IA)

Johnita Larie Clemons

While many Iowans celebrated Christmas on Wednesday, Des Moines police pursued leads in the capital’s 14th homicide of 2013.

Police made few details public Wednesday, but said this much: The victim’s name was Johnita Larie Clemons, 34. She was shot and killed shortly before 9:35 p.m. on Christmas Eve.

Tuesday evening, police responded to a 911 call at 1801 Francis Ave. in Des Moines. The caller said three shots were fired. However, police have been unable to verify that number.

Police said Wednesday that 34-year-old Johnita Larie Clemons of Des Moines was found Tuesday night inside a home on the city’s north side. Gunshots had been reported earlier in the area.

Killed – Devlin Lockman (Ames, IA)

male

A man police say was from Boone was charged last week for first-degree murder, alleging that he intentionally shot another man in the head after a brief struggle, according to court documents

Leigh Lepon, 32, was charged with first-degree murder in the death of 38-year-old Devlin Lockman, of Ames, who died on Dec. 20, 2013 of injuries from a single gunshot wound to his face. Although initially classified as an accidental shooting, according to court records, an investigation into the death began almost immediately after the incident occurred.

According to the document, officers were called to Lockman’s home at 4810 Westbend Drive in Ames on Dec. 20, 2013, for a report of “a male that had shot himself.” Upon arrival, officers found the victim with a gunshot wound to his face along with three other individuals, including Lepon. Lepon told officers that Lockman was intoxicated, had been waving a gun around and had shot himself in his face by accident.

Lepon and another individual – a female he was in a relationship with – were brought to the police department for questioning that night and released.

Less than two weeks later, officers were called to Mary Greeley Medical Center in Ames for a report of an alleged domestic assault involving the female that had previously been questioned about the events of that evening. In talking with officers, the witness stated that she had not been truthful during her initial interviews regarding the incident “as she was in fear for her life,” Detective Lovig noted in the search warrant application.

The witness alleged that Lepon had shot Lockman in his face following a brief struggle over a gun. According to the complaint and affidavit filed in the case, the witness stated that they “observed the defendant pick up a handgun, heard him manipulate the gun and then watched the defendant approach the victim who was seated on a couch. The victim and the defendant engaged in a brief struggled for the gun. The defendant pressed the gun in to the victim’s face and then shot the victim.”

Authorities say they were called to a home on Westbend Drive on December 20, 2013 at around 10:30 p.m.

Killed – Derek Jackson (Rock Island, IA)

Derek Jackson

Friends say the 24-year-old killed in a Rock Island shooting was a talented artist and loving father. Thursday, they asked for the community’s help to give his young son a merry Christmas.

Rock Island County Coroner Brian Gustafson said Derek Jackson was the man who died after he was shot at about noon Wednesday, December 18, 2013 in a home on 16th Avenue near Douglas Park.

A local jury found Aaron Henderson guilty of first-degree murder in the death of Rock Island tattoo artist Derek Jackson.

Jackson died after he was shot December 18, 2013, at a home on 16th Avenue in Rock Island. Jackson’s girlfriend, and his three-year-old son, were in the home when the shooting happened.

Aaron Henderson and Yolandius McDuffie were arrested and charged with first-degree murder; the first-degree murder charge was dropped moments before trial was set to begin in early January 2015 for 21-year-old Yolandius McDuffie.

A Rock Island man is headed to prison for forty years in connection with the murder of a local tattoo artist who was shot to death and robbed in 2013.

Aaron Henderson, 22, will have to serve the entire sentence.

Derek Jackson was shot to death in his house shortly before Christmas 2014. His girlfriend and son were inside the home at the time.

Henderson was discovered rifling through the pockets of Jackson, as he laid dead on the floor. Henderson was considered a friend of Jackson.

Killed – Bonnie Baker (Sioux City, IA)

Bonnie Baker

Raymond Frank Gonzales Jr., 22, who was arrested Monday on lesser charges, is now accused of killing Bonnie Baker, the Dakota County Attorney’s Office said Friday. Gonzales is being held at the Dakota County Jail in lieu of $1 million bail.

Baker, 28, was found dead of a gunshot wound Sunday afternoon in her mobile home in Siouxland Estates in the 1500 block of Atokad Drive in South Sioux City.

DAKOTA CITY | Tammy Baker knew what sentence Raymond Gonzales Jr. would receive for killing her daughter.

Nebraska sentencing laws called for Gonzales to receive a sentence of life in prison without parole for his conviction of first-degree murder.

With that knowledge in hand, it didn’t lessen the gratitude Baker felt Thursday after hearing District Judge Paul Vaughan announce Gonzales’ sentence for the Dec. 15, 2013, shooting of Bonnie Baker.

“It was amazing,” Tammy Baker said after the hearing. “I was so glad because now we can start to heal.”

A Dakota County District Court jury found Gonzales, 23, of Sioux City, guilty in December of first-degree murder and use of a firearm to commit a felony. In addition to the life sentence, Vaughan sentenced Gonzales to 30-40 years in prison on the firearm charge, a sentence that state law requires be served consecutively. It may have been a moot point in this case, but Vaughan chose to sentence Gonzales well above the five-year minimum on the gun charge because of the nature of the crime.

“This was a senseless act that caused devastation to the victim’s family,” Vaughan said.

Trial evidence showed that Bonnie Baker was shot 16 times at her home in Siouxland Estates in the 1500 block of Atokad Drive, in South Sioux City.

At trial, witnesses testified that Gonzales was upset after people at a party at Baker’s home teased him about having sexual relations with Baker’s brother the night before. Several of the people who had been at the party testified that when they were driving Gonzales home, they heard him mutter, “When I light that place up, it’s going to be like a fireworks show,” and seemed to be plotting revenge against Baker’s brother.

After being taken home, Gonzales returned to Baker’s home and shot her.

Double Shooting – Killed – Steven Jon Vogel (Des Moines, IA)

Steven Jon Vogel

DES MOINES, Iowa —Des Moines police held a news conference Thursday morning to provide more information about the shooting Wednesday.

Police spokesman Sgt. Jason Halifax provided a moment-by-moment rundown of the events as they unfolded on Thursday. He said the motive for the shootings remains unknown.

Police Chief Judy Bradshaw said the situation could have been “horrific.” She said the high powered assault weapon has capabilities far beyond what her officers carry — she said the officers were outgunned. She praised officers for their courage during the situation.

Halifax said the first call about the shooting came into 911 at 3:21 p.m. Many more calls followed with some from witnesses describing the shooting as it was happening.

Witnesses reported to police that a man with a black rifle was being fired into passing cars and into homes.

Halifax said officers could hear the shots as they arrived at the scene and then later could hear the shots hitting items around them as they closed in.

The man was identified as Steven Jon Vogel, 38, who lived at 1018 Creston Ave. He died Wednesday night at the hospital. Police said he had several incidents on his police record dating back to 2005.

Halifax said Vogel fired approximately 100 rounds from his weapon during an incident that lasted around 20 minutes, striking three vehicles and seven homes.

According to Halifax, one of the vehicles that was struck was driven by Larry Chiles, of Urbandale. Chiles received a graze wound to his head. He was able to drive to a medical clinic not far away and was then transported to Iowa Methodist Medical Center. His injury was non-life-threatening.

Chiles was listed in good condition Thursday morning and was expected to be released from the hospital Thursday.

Chiles told police that he saw a man fall to his knee and then fire the gun at his car.

Two Des Moines police officers who returned fire during the shooting were Lt. David Seybert and Officer Zachary McCarthy, said Halifax. The officers will be on paid administrative leave during the investigation.

Halifax said a shot from one of the police weapons hit Vogel in the head. Testing is being conducted to determine which officer’s bullet hit Vogel.

On Dec. 4, Vogel, 38, used the high-powered AR-10-style rifle and a handgun to fire almost 100 rounds at neighboring houses, passing vehicles, and responding police officers.

Seven houses and three vehicles were struck and a bullet grazed a motorist’s head before police shot and killed Vogel. The gunfire in the south-side neighborhood lasted about 20 minutes.

Vogel legally bought the rifle in 2007 from a Scheels All Sports, according to a trace by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

In 2008, a judge twice ordered Vogel to surrender all weapons to police after police said he pointed what looked like a handgun at two people and, in a separate incident, starting an altercation with someone in a parking lot.

Vogel took the pellet gun to the Des Moines Police Department, officials said.

A police officer’s report at the time said Vogel may have owned up to six guns. But complying with a court order to turn over weapons is the responsibility of the defendant, police said. Officers can’t search someone’s home for additional firearms.

In addition to the rifle, Vogel also used a handgun in the Dec. 4 shooting. That gun was purchased from a licensed dealer in 1999 by a third party but police aren’t sure when Vogel acquired it.

Once a gun enters the private market agencies can no longer track it.

Twenty minutes after the shooting began, it was over. At some point, Vogel was hit by an officer’s gunfire, police said. Vogel fell to the ground in his backyard.

Officers rushed forward, cautious that Vogel was feigning injury. He was found face-down with a gunshot wound to the head, his rifle still in his hands. The handgun was underneath him.

Des Moines police officials have determined which officer fired the shot that killed a Des Moines man who fired almost 100 rounds at houses, cars and other officers on the city’s south side last month.

Mass Shooting – Wounded – Man (Sioux City, IA)

male

SIOUX CITY | Michael Delgado had lived in Sioux City for only a couple of months and was planning to return to his California hometown when he was killed last week, his mother said Monday.

Delgado, 35, and Yolanda Valdez, 35, of Orange City, Iowa, died after they were shot late Thursday night at a house in the 500 block of West 27th Street, police said.

Delgado lived in the house with several others, including a third shooting victim, Luis Sanchez, 33, of Sioux City, who underwent surgery and was expected to survive.

Police said the shooting took place after Sanchez exchanged words with Juan Nino-Estrada, who is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted murder.

Nino-Estrada, 26, of Sioux City, had a gunshot wound to the leg when he was arrested, but police have not said how he was injured.

Nino-Estrada and his family members and friends who filled up two rows of seats behind him learned soon enough:

Guilty of first-degree murder for the death of Michael Delgado.

Guilty of first-degree murder for the death of Yolanda Valdez.

Guilty of attempted murder for pointing a gun at Luis Sanchez with the intent to kill him.

Guilty of willful injury for shooting Sanchez.

The jury received the case late Tuesday afternoon. Not quite two hours later, the jury eliminated the uncertainty.

Nino-Estrada, 27, of Sioux City, was guilty, showing no emotion as District Judge Jeffrey Poulson read the verdicts aloud.

Mass Shooting – Killed – Michael Delgado (Sioux City, IA)

male

SIOUX CITY | Michael Delgado had lived in Sioux City for only a couple of months and was planning to return to his California hometown when he was killed last week, his mother said Monday.

Delgado, 35, and Yolanda Valdez, 35, of Orange City, Iowa, died after they were shot late Thursday night at a house in the 500 block of West 27th Street, police said.

Delgado lived in the house with several others, including a third shooting victim, Luis Sanchez, 33, of Sioux City, who underwent surgery and was expected to survive.

Police said the shooting took place after Sanchez exchanged words with Juan Nino-Estrada, who is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted murder.

Nino-Estrada, 26, of Sioux City, had a gunshot wound to the leg when he was arrested, but police have not said how he was injured.

Nino-Estrada and his family members and friends who filled up two rows of seats behind him learned soon enough:

Guilty of first-degree murder for the death of Michael Delgado.

Guilty of first-degree murder for the death of Yolanda Valdez.

Guilty of attempted murder for pointing a gun at Luis Sanchez with the intent to kill him.

Guilty of willful injury for shooting Sanchez.

The jury received the case late Tuesday afternoon. Not quite two hours later, the jury eliminated the uncertainty.

Nino-Estrada, 27, of Sioux City, was guilty, showing no emotion as District Judge Jeffrey Poulson read the verdicts aloud.

Killed – Leroy Gordon III (Des Moines, IA)

Leroy Gordon III3

DES MOINES, Iowa —Des Moines police have released the identity of a man shot and killed Thursday night as a new reward is offered in the case.

Authorities said the shooting happened at 2104 Forest Ave. just after 6:32 p.m.

Police said the 21-year-old victim was taken to Iowa Methodist Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

“This specific address hasn’t been necessarily a hot-spot of activity, but we are in this location that tends to have a little bit more activity, and generally speaking, was in the area of more of the shootings that we’ve had this year,” said Sgt. Jason Halifax.

Des Moines police identified the victim as Leroy Gordon III in a news release Friday morning.

Killed – Tyler Comstock (Ames, IA)

Tyler Comstock

(CBS/AP) AMES, Iowa – A 19-year-old man was fatally shot by police on the campus of Iowa State University after his father called authorities to report that the teen had stolen his truck, reports CBS affiliate KCCI.

Tyler Comstock, 19, of Boone, was shot dead by Officer Adam McPherson, an 8-year-veteran of the department, at the end of an at-times high-speed pursuit through the city’s streets that ended on the college campus, reports the station.

The officer who shot the teen in Ames, Iowa Monday was cleared Thursday of wrongdoing, and the investigation was closed, reports the DeMoines Register.

A state’s attorney says the police officer who fatally shot the apparently unarmed man “acted reasonably under very difficult circumstances and….use of deadly force was justified,” reported KCCI.

Tyler Comstock’s father, James Comstock, told the Des Moines Register he refused to buy his son a package of cigarettes, which angered him and started the incident. James Comstock had called police to report the stolen vehicle.

Comstock told the newspaper he’s outraged police shot his son. Other family members told the newspaper police should have backed off the pursuit because they knew who they were chasing.

Story County Attorney Stephen Holmes, who said the officer’s actions were justified, in his report states, “In watching the videos I can’t help but express my concern that it was only by sheer luck that no one else was seriously injured or killed by Mr. Comstock.”

The chase eventually led to a patch of trees on ISU’s campus. Ames police said Tyler Comstock ignored orders to turn off his engine. Officer Adam McPherson fired six shots.

Two of those shots hit Tyler Comstock — one in his head and one in his chest. He died from the gunshot wounds.

Story County Attorney Stephen Holmes ruled the shooting as justified a few days later. No lawsuit was filed against the city, but James Comstock filed an application for the authority to settle a wrongful-death claim in February.

The application indicates Tyler Comstock died “as a result of the alleged negligence of the Ames Police Department.” It said the city of Ames offered a settlement of $225,000.

The Story County Attorney ruled the shooting as justified, but Comstock’s father filed a wrongful death lawsuit, claiming police negligence.

The settlement reached in the case was for $225,000. The city must pay $25,000 of that.

Insurance will pay the bulk of the settlement. Some disagree with the settlement saying police did the right thing to protect thousands of students, but others say no one wins in this situation.

Central Campus was shaken Monday morning by a high-speed chase involving officers of the Ames and Iowa State police departments and a lone lawn care truck driven by Tyler Comstock, 19, of Boone, Iowa.

At 10:17 a.m. on Monday, Tyler became involved in a police chase which began at Grand Avenue and Fourth Street. The pursuit proceeded to Beach Avenue, where he lost the trailer hitched to the truck. Tyler then continued onto Iowa State’s campus pursued by officers from the Ames Police Department until his truck came to a stop on Central Campus south of MacKay Hall, surrounded by both Ames and ISU police.

Six shots were fired by Ames Police officer Adam McPherson, one of which struck Tyler in the head. Another shot hit him in the chest.

Killed – Adrian Hernandez-Rojas (Sioux City, IA)

Adrian Hernandez-Rojas

SIOUX CITY, IA (ABC9)- The man accused of shooting a Sioux City man in October of last year and dumping his body in South Dakota accepted a plea agreement on Thursday and was sentenced to 35 years in prison.

20-year-old Martin Castellanos pleaded guilty to Attempted Murder and Willful Injury in connection to the death of 20-year-old Adrian Rojas-Hernandez. Castellanos was originally charged with 1st Degree Murder.

According to court documents, Castellanos and Rojas-Hernandez were partying at a home on West 15th street the night the incident happened. The documents allege that the two got into an argument before leaving the party. They then went back to another home on the west side.

Authorities say that Castellanos shot Rojas-Hernandez in the head at that home on the 1400 block of West 15th Street in Sioux City on October 27th of last year. He then took the body to a rural area near Worthing, South Dakota in Lincoln County. There, authorities say he burned Rojas-Hernandez’s body and left it in a ditch.

Castellanos was sentenced to 25 years in prison for Attempted Murder and 10 years in prison for Willful Injury in connection to the incident. The two sentences will be served consecutively, and he will have serve a minimum of 22 and a half years in prison. Castellanos was also ordered to pay $150,000 dollars to the victim’s family.

20-year-old Adrian Rojas Hernandez had been shot in the head. Police believe he was murdered in Sioux City between 3 and 6 AM.

At his final pretrial conference, Martin Castellanos, 20, pleaded guilty in Woodbury County District Court to attempted murder and willful injury causing serious injury for the Oct. 27 shooting death of Adrian Rojas-Hernandez.

Authorities say the man was killed early Sunday morning on the west side of town.

Murder/Attempted Suicide – Killed – Millisa Cox (Council Bluffs, IA)

Millisa Cox

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa —Council Bluffs police believe a man who held police at bay for nearly two hours Tuesday shot a woman before attempting to shoot himself.

Emergency crews, SWAT and a negotiator were sent to the home near 34th and Avenue B around 8:15 a.m. Neighbors reported seeing a woman in the front yard and then calling 911.

Police said the woman, identified as Millisa Cox, 44, was taken to Mercy Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Sgt. Chad Meyers said Millisa was shot once in the back with a revolver.

A perimeter was set up outside the home, and officers were eventually able to get inside the home, where they found Darwin Cox, 55, passed out on the floor.

Police said Darwin Cox had a single gunshot wound to his chin, but the wound was not life-threatening.

Millisa Cox, 44, was shot to death in Council Bluffs by her husband Darwin Cox, 55. Darwin Cox shot Millisa and then turned the gun on himself. Cox held the police at bay for about an hour before the tactical team was able to enter the house. Darwin Cox survived the attempted suicide and pled guilty to charges of voluntary manslaughter, intimidation with a dangerous weapon with intent, and going armed with intent. Millisa is survived by an adult daughter and a minor son.

Attempted Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Woman (Oelwein, IA)

female

OELWEIN | Myron Meador, the alleged shooter in an attempted murder-suicide this week in Fayette County, succumbed to his wounds Wednesday.

Meador, 44, of Oelwein, died at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to a death notice released by Sanders Funeral Service.

On Tuesday morning, Oelwein police found Meador’s wife, Niki Meador, 38, with multiple gunshot wounds inside her home at 170 10th Ave. N.E. Myron Meador was also found at the residence.

Niki Meador was taken to Mercy Hospital in Oelwein, then airlifted to Iowa City.

Niki Meador sought help for domestic abuse last year, according to court records, and her husband’s criminal record included a conviction for domestic violence involving a gun.

Neighbors said they heard gunfire about 7 a.m. Tuesday. Police witnessed “active gunfire from inside the residence and began to engage the occupants,” according to the Oelwein Police Department.

OELWEIN, Iowa – An Oelwein woman involved in a shooting last month has been released from the hospital.

Authorities said Myron Meador, 44, shot at his wife Niki Meador, 38, multiple times on Oct. 16 before turning the gun on himself. Myron Meador died at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics a day later.

The shooting happened at the couple’s home in the 100 block of 10th Avenue NW in Oelwein just before 7 a.m. When officers arrived, they said there was active gunfire inside the home. Officers said Myron Meador left his home shortly after the shooting but was later detained and taken to an Oelwein hospital where he died. They found Niki Meador in the couple’s home. She was transported by air to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

Attempted Murder/Suicide – Dead – Myron Meador (Oelwein, IA)

Myron Meador

OELWEIN | Myron Meador, the alleged shooter in an attempted murder-suicide this week in Fayette County, succumbed to his wounds Wednesday.

Meador, 44, of Oelwein, died at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to a death notice released by Sanders Funeral Service.

On Tuesday morning, Oelwein police found Meador’s wife, Niki Meador, 38, with multiple gunshot wounds inside her home at 170 10th Ave. N.E. Myron Meador was also found at the residence.

Niki Meador was taken to Mercy Hospital in Oelwein, then airlifted to Iowa City.

Niki Meador sought help for domestic abuse last year, according to court records, and her husband’s criminal record included a conviction for domestic violence involving a gun.

Neighbors said they heard gunfire about 7 a.m. Tuesday. Police witnessed “active gunfire from inside the residence and began to engage the occupants,” according to the Oelwein Police Department.

OELWEIN, Iowa – An Oelwein woman involved in a shooting last month has been released from the hospital.

Authorities said Myron Meador, 44, shot at his wife Niki Meador, 38, multiple times on Oct. 16 before turning the gun on himself. Myron Meador died at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics a day later.

The shooting happened at the couple’s home in the 100 block of 10th Avenue NW in Oelwein just before 7 a.m. When officers arrived, they said there was active gunfire inside the home. Officers said Myron Meador left his home shortly after the shooting but was later detained and taken to an Oelwein hospital where he died. They found Niki Meador in the couple’s home. She was transported by air to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

Killed – David James Warnell (Marshalltown, IA)

David James Warnell

A jury has convicted a Marshalltown man of voluntary manslaughter and other charges in the death of a 59-year-old Garwin man.

A Cerro Gordo County jury on Wednesday found Jeremy A. Gartin guilty of voluntary manslaughter, abuse of a corpse and carrying a concealed weapon in the Oct. 1 death of David Warnell.

Marshalltown police say 59-year-old David James Warnell, of Garwin, was killed Tuesday. He was fatally shot in the head.

Two men have been charged in the slaying. Online court records say 30-year-old Jeremy Gartin is charged with first-degree murder and carrying a concealed weapon. Fifty-five-year-old Max Nelson Jr. is charged with theft, abuse of a corpse and being an accessory.

On Tuesday morning, October 1, 2013, law enforcement personnel in Marshall County received information regarding a suspicious death that reportedly occurred within the city limits of Marshalltown. Law enforcement personnel acting on this information, and subsequent investigative leads, ultimately secured a residence located at 502 North 4th Avenue. A search warrant was obtained for this residence and a body was located inside this home late Tuesday evening.

Killed – Rodney Eugene Long (Clarinda, IA)

Rodney Eugene Long

An escaped inmate in Iowa was shot and killed by a 71-year-old homeowner Tuesday after taking the man and his wife hostage for four hours.

On Sunday, Rodney Eugene Long, 38, broke out of the Clarinda Correctional Facility, where he was serving a five-year sentence for burglary, KETV reported.

Long shot a sheriff’s deputy, then stole the deputy’s car, leading officials on a 40-minute chase before he crashed the vehicle and took off running into a wooded area, according to the Daily Iowegian. A massive manhunt ensued Monday.

That night at about 10:15, Long broke into the Bedford home of 71-year-old Jerome Mauderly and his wife, 66-year-old Carolyn Mauderly, the Des Moines Register reported. The Mauderleys told officials that Long held them in their bedrooms, used their cell phones and disabled the other phones in the home. Authorities have not said who Long was calling.

After about four hours, the couple was able to obtain access to a shotgun kept in their home, and Jerome Mauderly fatally shot Long.

The Mauderleys were uninjured, and the deputy shot by Long is in stable condition and expected to fully recover.

A statement from Iowa State Police said Rodney Eugene Long, 38, escaped from the minimum-security facility Friday, August 16, 2013.

A Taylor County, Iowa deputy who stopped to speak to a man seen walking along Highway 2 near New Market, just before 11:30 p.m. Sunday, August 18, the deputy was shot twice. The suspect allegedly then took the deputy’s patrol vehicle as a second deputy arrived at the scene. The second deputy picked up the injured deputy and pursued the stolen patrol car.

Officers from several law enforcement jurisdictions pursued the stolen car for about 40 minutes through rural Taylor County. Police said gunfire was exchanged between the suspect and police during the pursuit. The chase ended when the stolen patrol car was rolled several times on a rural road. The suspect escaped on foot and had not yet been found.

Killed – Amanda Abbott (Davenport, IA)

Amanda Abbott1

Authorities arrested a man in connection with a shooting that claimed the life of a 25-year-old Davenport woman early Saturday.

Albert “AJ” Coats, 22, was taken into custody at the Highcliffs Estates Trailer Park in Milan, just hours after Amanda Abbott suffered a fatal gunshot wound.

Coats, also of Davenport, was taken to the Milan Police Department and then was transferred to the Rock Island County Jail. Coats remained in the jail Saturday night, awaiting extradition on warrants charging him with second-degree murder, felon in possession of a firearm and theft-third degree possession of stolen property, according to a news release issued by Assistant Davenport Police Chief Donald Schaeffer.

Police said they have the weapon used in the homicide.

Schaeffer said Coats was found at the trailer park with the help of the Milan and Rock Island police departments and the Rock Island County Sheriff’s Department. He initially refused to come out for a “short period of time,” but eventually was taken into custody, Schaeffer added.

At 1:02 a.m. Saturday, the Scott County Emergency Communications Center received a 911 call in reference to a female who had been shot at 1825 W. 1st St., Schaeffer said.

Officers found Abbott dead at the scene.

Friends contended the shooting was an accident, and that Abbott and Coats were friends.  One woman said Coats was trying to get a stuck bullet out of the chamber of the gun when it accidentally went off.

ANKENY, Iowa (AP) — Police have charged an Ankeny father after they say he shot his 18-year-old daughter to death in the apartment they shared.

Police say someone in the apartment called 911 around 5:30 p.m. Friday to report a shooting. Officers arrived to find Emily Nicole Hazelbaker dead from a single gunshot.

Her father, 51-year-old Scott Hazelbaker, was questioned, along with another man. Police said Saturday that Hazelbaker has been arrested and charged with assault by intentionally pointing a weapon.

Police continue to investigate, but say early reports suggest Scott Hazelbaker pointed a handgun at his daughter and pulled the trigger without knowing the gun was loaded.
