Davenport police have taken three people into custody as they investigate what could turn out to be a rolling shootout between two vehicles that began in the 900 block of Brown Street and ended in the 2100 block of Pine Street near the intersection of West Lombard Street.
Davenport police were called to the 2100 block of Pine Street at 7:06 p.m. Friday in reference to a shots fired call. When officers got to the scene they located 11 shell casings and there was a stolen vehicle parked in the 1600 block of Lookout Lane with several bullet holes in it.
Two males ran from the scene, first down Pine across Locust Street and then west toward North Lincoln Avenue. Police saw them running and people near the Hy-Vee at the intersection of Lincoln Avenue and West Locust Street helped point police to where the men fled.
The two were captured in an area of West 18th Street just west of Lincoln Avenue. A woman also was taken into custody for questioning as police believe she may have been involved in some manner.
On Pine Street, neighbors said they heard the pops of the gunfire. One neighbor had his own surveillance camera system working and showed the video to police.
