Davenport police have made a second arrest stemming from a shooting in August that left one man seriously injured.

Randall Torrington Ramsey II, 28, of Davenport, was booked into the Scott County Jail at 3:48 p.m. Friday on charges of intimidation with a dangerous weapon and willful injury.

Both charges are a Class C felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

Online court records show he was released a day later after posting $20,000 through a bail bond company.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Jan. 24.

According to an arrest affidavit filed by Davenport police in support of the criminal complaint:

At 11:47 p.m. Aug. 21, Ramsey and co-defendant Micah Lee Bates Jr., 28, of Davenport, drove to Judson and East 12th Street.

One was armed with a .40-caliber semi-automatic handgun and the other with a .380-caliber semi-automatic handgun. Both guns had a laser sights attached.

Once they parked in the area, they fired several times at a man, who suffered serious injuries and was transported to University Hospitals, Iowa City, for immediate lifesaving surgery.

The man was hospitalized for several days after his surgery, according to the affidavits.

Bates was charged in December with attempted murder, willful injury causing serious injury and possession of a firearm or offensive weapon by a felon in connection with the incident.

He already was in the Scott County Jail on charges of intimidation with a dangerous weapon, going armed with intent, willful injury resulting in bodily injury and possession of a firearm or offensive weapon by a felon in connection with a shooting on July 9.

In that case, police say Bates fired a gun at two people, striking one in the leg, during an argument in a parking lot in the 800 block of East River Drive.

Ramsey was arrested and charged in December with providing the gun, a .40-caliber handgun, to Bates in the July shooting. He also is accused of giving a false Davenport address when purchasing the gun and a Ruger .380-caliber pistol from a gun store in Bettendorf.

A third man, Taylor Joseph Fuglsang, 23, was charged with intimidation with a dangerous weapon and accessory to a felony, an aggravated misdemeanor, after police say he drove the getaway vehicle following the shooting in July.

A former East Moline man told a Rock Island police detective that he had not intended to kill a Davenport teenager outside a Rock Island night club on Jan. 15, 2012, prosecutors said Thursday.

Rather, Dentrell J. Brown said he fired his gun at a vehicle driven by Damien T. Howard, 14, after the teen had fired shots in the area earlier that night.

Brown, 25, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in Howard\u2019s death and was sentenced to 15 years in prison during a hearing Thursday at the Rock Island County Justice Center.

Fifteen years is the maximum sentence on the Class 1 felony charge.

In exchange for his guilty plea, Assistant State\u2019s Attorney Heidi Weller dismissed charges of first-degree murder, aggravated battery with a firearm and aggravated discharge of a firearm.

Brown was given credit for time served in custody since a Rock Island County grand jury handed up a three-count indictment on Jan. 8, 2015.

At the time he was indicted, Brown was serving a nine-year sentence in the Illinois Department of Corrections for a 2012 home invasion.

According to a factual basis read in court by Weller and provided to the Quad-City Times by Rock Island County State\u2019s Attorney John McGehee:

On Jan. 15, 2012, Brown was present at a party at G5 Dance Club, a teen nightclub located at the intersection of 11th Street and 5th Avenue in Rock Island.

Around 12:05 a.m., Rock Island police responded to the area for a report of shots fired and found a Jeep Grand Cherokee that had crashed into a telephone pole. Howard had suffered a gunshot wound to the head.

Witnesses told police that the\u00a0vehicle had driven by earlier in the evening and that Howard fired a shot from inside of it. A gun was located in the vehicle and Howard\u2019s clothing revealed the presence of gunshot residue.

Brown was developed as a suspect in Howard\u2019s death. He told a police detective that he had fired a shot toward the\u00a0Jeep as it drove by but denied that he intended to kill Howard.

He further said that he had aimed for the ground and the bullet ricocheted up and shot out the window of the Jeep. Shell casings recovered in the area where Brown said he stood were found to have been fired from the same weapon as the projectile removed from Howard during his autopsy, according to the factual basis.

One of Howard\u2019s passengers, a 15-year-old boy, was shot in the leg.

Howard was taken to Trinity Rock Island and later to OSF St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria, where he died.

The 15-year-old passenger, who was not at the scene when police arrived, later was treated and released from Genesis Medical Center-West Central Park, Davenport, according to police.

McGhee said Thursday afternoon that although there was \u201cprobably not enough for a self-defense argument,\u201d the circumstances surrounding the incident more appropriately made this a case of second-degree murder.

He added that Howard's family, as well as law enforcement, was consulted before the plea deal was offered.\u00a0

This had better be good.

Muscatine City Council walks a fine line with its coming impeachment hearings that could oust Mayor Diana Broderson. The freshman mayor mustn't be guilty of anything too egregious. The state attorney general isn't walking the halls. The state auditor isn't combing through the books.

So the council will find itself in a tough position when the impeachment hearing convenes: Justify Broderson's ouster for something that didn't merit a state investigation.\u00a0

What is known is that, throughout her year in office, the council has stripped Broderson of her power. It has regularly excluded her from closed-door sessions. It has actively worked to isolate her.\u00a0

To many, last week's move to draft impeachment charges is just another step in a year-long crusade to delegitimize the mayor elected by Muscatine's citizens.\u00a0

In a matter of weeks, the City Council will convene and, apparently, try to prove that Broderson, in a year in office, displayed \"willful\" and \"habitual\" misconduct of her duties. The council will assume the burden of proof, at least in the mind of the public. It's a high bar.\u00a0

Councilman Michael Rehwaldt appeared to hint at the yet-to-be-filed charges last week, while reading the legislation that instated the impeachment process. Rehwaldt lightly touched on \"neglect of fiduciary\" duties. But he specifically highlighted allegations that Broderson is bad-mouthing the council and city staff around town, \"undermining public trust\" in government.\u00a0

That had better not be the crux of the council's case. Ousting an elected officials for exercising her First Amendment rights, and publicly blasting City Administrator Gregg Mandsager, would be an attack on the democratic process.

Neither Mandsager nor the several members of the City Council with whom I spoke will offer details. Wait until the charges are filed, they say. The city's attorney has said silence is the safest legal course, they say.

That's probably true, but the lack of details only compounds the damage done to public perception, regardless of whose side they're on.\u00a0

On Thursday night, the effects of the year-long dispute between Broderson and the council were already exceedingly obvious.\u00a0The pitchforks were out.\u00a0

Broderson had done her work and rallied her supporters. I counted about 70 members of the public packed into the City Council Chambers. Judging by the applause, Broderson supporters outnumbered her opponents' backers 10 to 1. Over Mandsager objections, she opened the floor for comment and one after another, they got up and skewered the council and administrator for this \"witch hunt.\"

Small town politics are often the ugliest. It's where interests are the most entrenched. It's where familial spats can last generations.\u00a0

Muscatine City Council had better be ready to prove that Broderson's so-called \"negligence\" cost taxpayers. It had better be able to show that she acted in a way that objectively undermined government.\u00a0

If the City Council fails to make its case, it'll prove Broderson's argument that the whole thing is nothing but a petty, vindictive rejection of the voters. It'll validate her supporters, who believe the dispute merely sets the \"good ol' boys\" against a political outsider.

An undemocratic coup would undermine trust in City Hall far more than anything Broderson might have said at a local coffee joint.\u00a0

Wait and see, members of Muscatine City Council say. In the meantime, the rancor swirls and the divisions widen.

Council members must prove to Muscatine's citizens that they're acting in the city's best interest. So far, through silence and action, they haven't done much to help their case. \u00a0

Adam Vay doesn't expect to drop the gloves at all this season, but he's certainly capable of landing a knockout blow.

The newest Quad-City Mallards goaltender is also into mixed martial arts, first introduced to the sport by his father, an ex-SWAT officer. It's something the Budapest, Hungary, native loves to do in his spare time, a way to relieve stress away from an already stressful sport.

\"I really love fighting but I\u2019m not thinking about killing this guy or beating (him up),\" Vay said. \"I\u2019m 100 percent focused on the puck and the fight is not my business on the ice.\"

Vay is in his first season as a professional after an eye-opening performance this summer with the Hungarian national team during the IIHF World Championships. Despite Hungary winning just one game, Vay was a bright spot. He made 32 saves in a 5-1 loss to the United States, and stopped 45 shots in a 3-1 loss to Finland, which won silver at the tournament.

All told, Vay stopped 91 of the 100 shots he faced and finished with a 3.67 goals against average. He signed a two-year entry-level contract with the Minnesota Wild on May 18, two days after Hungary's stay in the tournament ended.

\"It was really surprising to me, especially after the World Championships,\" Vay said. \"That\u2019s a tough game, everybody who is the best is playing, so it\u2019s really tough. I was really excited when I played with the big boys. It was an amazing feeling.\"

Vay skated in the Wild's developmental camp this summer before joining the Mallards last week, becoming the second Hungarian to play for the team after Gergo Nagy played in 2013-14. At 6-foot-5, 209 pounds, his size is certainly an asset, but he's raw, and is going to need some time to adjust to the North American pro game.

\"He\u2019s got all the tools. Now we\u2019ve just got to find a place to put them all in, a tool chest,\" Mallards head coach Terry Ruskowski said. \"He\u2019s big, he\u2019s quick, he\u2019s game ... I think he\u2019s going to be a good player, a good goalie and he\u2019s got a bright future because Minnesota is very high on him.\"

Vay had a rough professional debut with the Mallards, allowing five goals in just two periods to Fort Wayne in an eventual 6-2 loss. It was a tough situation for the rookie, who had joined the team the day before and hadn't had much time to get used to his teammates.

\"I had just one practice with the boys and everything was new,\" he said. \"Really, I don\u2019t know the tactics, what I\u2019m looking for, the 2-on-1s, whether my defense is going to take the puck guy or the other guy or if he\u2019s staying in the middle. Now, we\u2019re practicing hard and I know my teammates now. It\u2019s going to be better.\"

Two of the goals allowed were ones that Vay would like to have back \u2014 one that trickled through his pads and another that beat Vay over the shoulder into a wide-open area of the net, but he didn't get much help from the players in front of him, and Ruskowski knows he has to give his rookie some time.

Ruskowski said he expects Minnesota's developmental goalie coach, Frederic Chabot, to be down to work with Vay a lot throughout the season, but when Chabot isn't in the Quad-Cities, assistant coach Phil Axtell will be spending a lot of time working with Vay as well as fellow goaltender C.J. Motte.

\"He\u2019s hungry, he works hard in practice and wants to get better,\" Axtell said of Vay. \"He hates losing. He loves the game and wants to get better.\"

It's not Vay's first experience with the smaller rinks of North America. He played two seasons of juniors with the El Paso Rhinos in the Westen States Hockey League, where he helped lead the team to a Thorne Cup and junior A national title.

Still, the difference between juniors and the pros, as well as playing on a smaller rink again took Vay a little time to adjust. He feels he's learned a lot from that first game and is ready to improve when the team travels to face Rapid City this weekend.

\"There\u2019s so much traffic in front of the net, it\u2019s not a big change for me but there\u2019s a lot of guys in front of me,\" Vay said. \"So I need to learn to pick up the puck and how to position myself.\"

If Vay can show enough progress in the next two years, he would become his country's first player to skate in the NHL. There have been Hungarians drafted by the NHL, but none have made it to the ice.

Vay would love to be the first.

\"It\u2019s really tough to do,\" he said. \"I will do everything it takes to achieve my dreams.\"

Group O plans to\u00a0fill 50 new positions in the Quad-Cities to expand its customer service and DIRECTV/AT&T Services sales divisions, the Milan-based company announced Thursday.

According to a news release, the expansion comes after Group O secured a partnership late last year with AT&T as the company\u2019s new Entertainment Group Reward Program Supplier.

A Davenport man with a criminal record that has taken him through the Iowa, Illinois and federal court systems has been charged peddling heroin in the Quad-Cities.

Jonas Ross III, 36, of 6302 Appomattox Road, is charged with three counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.

Ross also is being held for failing to appear for his court hearings on charges of possession with the intent to deliver heroin, possession of marijuana and failing to affix an Iowa drug tax stamp.

According to one of the arrest affidavits filed in connection with the new charges, Davenport police officers with the department\u2019s Tactical Operations Bureau set up a controlled drug buy with Ross on July 5. A confidential source was used to buy .25 grams of heroin from Ross while Davenport police officers watched and video-recorded the transaction.

Possession with the intent to deliver not more than 100 grams of heroin is a Class C felony under Iowa law that carries a prison sentence of up to 10 years.

In the earlier cases, on May 19, an officer on foot patrol in the 700 block of West 3rd Street saw Ross placing marijuana into a cigar wrapper while seated in a vehicle, according to an arrest affidavit filed by Davenport Police Officer Jarrad Cockshoot.

During a search of the vehicle, officers seized 2.7 grams of heroin from Ross\u2019 pants pocket. He also had 2.5 grams of marijuana in his hands.

Failing to affix a drug tax stamp is a Class D felony in Iowa that carries a prison sentence of up to five years. The marijuana possession charge is a serious misdemeanor that carries a jail sentence of up to one year.

Ross has a criminal record that includes drugs and weapons charges. He served three years in federal prison for being a felon in possession of a firearm. He was released from Leavenworth Penitentiary in June 2009.

Ross also has survived being shot. On Dec. 21, 2004, he sustained seven gunshot wounds after he was shot by a man whom he had robbed and the man shot Ross in retaliation, police said.

Ross also is on probation in Iowa for felony domestic assault from a 2014 case. He is not scheduled to be released from probation until Oct. 16, 2018.

Ross was being held Saturday night in the Scott County Jail on cash-only bonds totaling $17,000 and secured bonds totaling $30,000.

Police said additional charges against Ross are possible as the investigation continues.

A Davenport man was arrested early Monday after police say he jumped over the counter of a Walgreens pharmacy and took 940 hydromorphone\u00a0pills.

Chad Morgan Fairchild, 23, last known address 3 Imperial Court, faces charges of first-degree theft, second-degree burglary and prohibited acts.

Just before 5 a.m. Monday, Davenport police responded to the Walgreens, 1525 E. Kimberly Road, for a report of a robbery at the pharmacy.

According to an arrest affidavit, Fairchild jumped over the pharmacy counter and demanded painkillers and ordered an employee not to walk away from him. The employee placed the pills into a plastic store bag, and Fairchild took it from her hand, according to the affidavit.

The employee was in fear for her life during the incident, according to the affidavit.

Officers who responded to the store spotted a person, later identified as Fairchild, matching the description of the suspect on the bike trail near Eastern Avenue.

He had approximately 940 pills of hydromorphone, an opioid pain medication, in his possession, according to the affidavit. Fairchild did not have a valid prescription for the painkillers, according to the affidavit.\u00a0

Police also recovered clothes worn during the incident.
