Moline police on Wednesday arrested a man in connection with a shooting that left one man with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.

James W. Davis, 22, was booked into the Rock Island County Jail on charges of aggravated unlawful use of weapons and unlawful use of weapons.

Bond was set at $40,000. He will be back in court Nov. 14 for a preliminary hearing.

Around 12:10 a.m., Moline police were called to the 1400 block of 15th Street for a report of shots fired.

Witnesses identified a suspect fleeing the area; officers were able to arrest the man.

A short time later, police were notified that a 41-year-old man arrived at Trinity Rock Island with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to his “upper extremity,” Detective Michael Griffin said in a news release.

The man has since been released from the hospital, Griffin said.

He said it appears that the shooting happened during an argument that escalated into several people firing weapons, causing injury to the man.

The argument, Griffin said, appears to be a “continuation of an altercation” that has been ongoing between two groups over the last couple of weeks.

Griffin said the investigation is ongoing and additional charges are possible.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Moline Police Criminal Investigation Division at 309-524-2140 or Crime Stoppers of the Quad Cities at 309-762-9500.
