A man suffered a gunshot wound Thursday in what appears to be a rolling shootout in the 100 block of West 65th Street in Davenport, police said.
In a news release issued Thursday evening, police said officers were sent to the area at 2:52 p.m. to investigate a report of shots fired. The preliminary information indicates there were people in two vehicles involved in a dispute when shots were fired from at least one of the vehicles into the other. The vehicles then fled in different directions.
Kwik Star, a Shell gasoline station and Menards are all located in that area.
Officers were then sent to the Motel 6, 101 W. 65th St., to investigate the report of a man suffering from a gunshot wound.
Officers provided medical treatment to the man until medics arrived. The man was taken to Genesis Medical Center East, Davenport, for treatment of a non-life-threatening wound.
Police were able to determine that the man’s wounds were related to the shots-fired incident police were investigating.
There were reports that indicated that some of the people involved in the shots-fired incident had run toward Menards. Police blocked the entrance to the store with their squad cars and made a coordinated search of the business, but no suspects were located.
Business operations at Menards were disrupted for about an hour.
