A Davenport man has been arrested in connection with a shooting Sunday afternoon in Davenport.
Adan Arturo Herrera, 23, last known address in the 1600 block of West 9th Street, was booked into the Scott County Jail at 4:44 p.m. Sunday on a charge of assault by displaying a dangerous weapon, an aggravated misdemeanor punishable by up to two years in prison.
He also faces citations for reckless driving, no registration and no insurance.
Herrera was released from the jail less than two hours later after posting $2,900 through a bail bond company. He has a first court appearance Tuesday morning, according to online court records.
At 3:11 p.m. Sunday, police responded to the area of 700 Howell Street and 400 Fillmore Street after receiving simultaneous reports of shots fired.
Preliminary information indicates that two vehicles were chasing and ramming one another as shots were fired from at least one of the vehicles, according to police.
According to an arrest affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, Herrera was driving his gray 2008 Chevrolet Impala south on Fillmore Street and was approaching West 4th Street and intentionally rammed a dark blue 1992 Toyota truck in the rear, according to the affidavit.
Approximately two shots were fired from the Chevrolet Impala at the truck after impact, according to affidavit. The truck turned westbound on West 4th Street from Fillmore Street and the Chevrolet Impala began chasing it at a high rate of speed down West 4th Street, according to the affidavit.
Police located video surveillance of the intentional ram and located spent shell casings at West 4th and Fillmore streets.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Davenport Police Department at 563-326-6125 or submit an anonymous tip via the mobile app entitled “CityConnect Davenport, IA” or “CrimeReports by Motorola.”
Herrerra was given a five-year suspended prison sentence and placed on two years of probation in October 2016 on two counts of possession with intent to deliver marijuana and carrying weapons, an aggravated misdemeanor, in connection with a multi-jurisdictional firearms investigation.
Police on Monday declined to say whether Sunday’s shooting was connected to a fatal shooting late Friday.
Police were called to the 1300 block of Warren Street at 11:14 p.m. Angel Herrera, 17, of Davenport, was taken to Genesis Medical Center-East Rusholme Street, Davenport, with a reported gunshot wound to the head.
