Two suspects in Scott County Jail face felony charges including attempted murder for a shooting incident in Bettendorf.
Andre Little, 27, and Daniel Morgan, 32, face charges in connection with a shooting incident on Jan. 4 in the 3400 block of Towne Pointe Drive in Bettendorf, according to arrest affidavits.
Police allege that Little and Morgan were trying to find a 20-year-old victim in an apartment. The victim locked the door between him and the other two, but they forced their way in, according to arrest affidavits.
Once inside, they physically assaulted the victim. Morgan had a handgun while in the residence, police allege in arrest affidavits. The victim fled the residence into the hallway outside when Morgan fired one round at him, striking him in the chest.
Both Morgan and Little took off, according to affidavits. Officers found the other man with an apparent gunshot wound and immediately provided treatment. The victim, with what appeared to be a non-life threatening injury, was transported by Medic EMS to a hospital, a news release says.
Affidavits say the victim knows Morgan, and identified him as the shooter. Security video from the apartment complex, in addition to other video obtained during the investigation, helped police to identify the two.
The victim and Morgan were arguing about money outside the apartment complex before the altercation, affidavits say. The victim believed the altercation was because Morgan was upset that the victim was taking too long to get his money.

About 5:30 p.m. Friday, deputies from the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office located and placed in custody Daniel Morgan, of Rock Island. Deputies found Morgan at the Casey’s gas station in Lewistown, Ill., and he was taken into custody without incident, the release says.
