Neighbor: 'We just hear this pop' when man shot at barbershop

One Davenport man suffered a non-life threatening gunshot wound

One man was shot Thursday during a dispute at a Davenport barbershop. 

The Davenport Police Department responded to a report of gunfire at Devine Creations in the 700 block of West 3rd Street at approximately 12:45 p.m.

When officers arrived, they found a 26-year-old Davenport man with a non-life threatening gunshot wound. He was transported to Genesis Medical Center.

A neighbor said he was eating when a shot rang out.

"Just finishing up with breakfast, and we just hear this pop," neighbor Matthew Duffy said. "We kind of looked at each other. We usually hear a lot of noise, but ... it was definitely a lot louder than what it normally is."

Police said that preliminary information indicates there was a dispute within the business between two people, which led to a gunshot being fired. Both fled the business. The gunshot victim was not directly involved in the dispute.

No other injuries have been reported.

Officers and Detectives are investigating the incident. No further information is available at this time.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged 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.”
