A Davenport man on pretrial release on a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm was back behind bars Monday morning on drug and gun charges following a shots fired incident.
Cameron Michael Smith, 24, last known address in the 200 block of Washington Street, was booked into the Scott County Jail at 4:41 a.m. on two counts of possession with intent to deliver, possession of a firearm or offensive weapon by a felon, trafficking stolen weapons, and possession of a controlled substance, a serious misdemeanor.
He also faces misdemeanor charges of domestic abuse assault and obstruction of emergency communications in an unrelated case.
Bond was set Wednesday at $5,000 cash-only. A preliminary hearing is slated for Nov. 17.
According to arrest affidavits filed by Davenport police in support of the criminal complaint:
At 12:51 a.m., police responded to the area of Lincoln and Boies Avenue for a report of shots fired. A witness said a silver Saturn was involved in the shooting.
Smith was later found exiting and standing next to a car that matched the witness’s description.
During a pat down of Smith, officers found a black and silver Smith & Wesson P95 pistol tucked into the front of his waist band.
A records check revealed that the gun that the defendant possessed was stolen in February in Rock Island County.
