Bond was set Monday at $20,000 cash-only for a Davenport felon charged with aiming a gun at a man in a Davenport bar and then firing a gun at another person early Sunday.
Cazmiere DeShawn Graves, 22, filed a written waiver of his right to a preliminary hearing through his attorney, Lori Kieffer-Garrison, in Scott County District Court.
He will be arraigned April 5. Graves faces charges of intimidation with a dangerous weapon, being a felon on possession of a firearm, and interference with official acts using a firearm.
Police say he was inside Shenanigan’s Irish Pub, 303 W. 3rd St., at 12:32 a.m. Sunday and pointed a gun with the attached laser-sight on at a man.
Graves was later seen by witnesses firing the gun while chasing the man down the street, according to police.
There were large groups of people on the sidewalk outside the bar as well as police officers in the Harrison Street parking ramp who were in the line of fire, according to police.
Officers ordered Graves to drop the gun, but he tried to flee, according to police.
He has been convicted several times of felony offenses and is prohibited of owning or possessing a firearm.
The shooting was one of five shots-fired calls reported to Davenport police Sunday.
The other incidents occurred in the 900 block of West Lombard Street; West 2nd and North Howell streets; the 400 block of South Dittmer Street; and the 1300 block of Brady Street.
In the incident on West 2nd and North Howell streets, police say Michael Joseph Havig, 21, was intoxicated and went outside his home and fired a gun in two separate areas.
Havig was charged with misdemeanor charges of carrying a dangerous weapon while intoxicated, public intoxication and reckless use of a firearm.
Havig was released from the Scott County Jail after posting $1,000 through a bail bond company. He has a preliminary hearing March 21, according to court records.
No other arrests have been made in any of the other incidents. Davenport Police Major Jeff Bladel said “at this time we do not have any indication that they (the incidents) are connected,” and added that detectives are following up.
As of Monday, there have been 46 confirmed shots fired calls in Davenport, up from 35 for the same period in 2017.
“Gun-related incidents are a high priority and we have a significant amount of resources devoted to those investigations,” Bladel said.
Those resources include the department’s patrol division, tactical operations bureau, crime present and NETS (Neighborhoods Energized To Succeed) units.
