Four arrested after police heard gunshots in cemetery


Three women and one man were arrested after Davenport Police heard shots fired in Pinehill Cemetery early Wednesday.

Officers responded to the 1500 block of East 39th Street around 2:15 a.m. after an officer heard a single gunshot in the vicinity. 

Officers blocked off the entrance to the cemetery within one minute and did not observe any vehicles leaving the area. 

An officer observed L’Mykalah Cooke, 20, Darvion Lard, 19, Aliyah Dantzler, 24, and Kyneisha Robinson, 23, on the north end of the cemetery parked and hanging around the only vehicle inside the cemetery. 

The four people entered the car, drove northbound around a roundabout and back south. The officer stopped and detained the four and located a live round in the grass near where the officer first observed them. 

Officers then located a pistol with a spent casing lodged inside the gun in the grass alongside the roundabout. The live round was the same .380 caliber as the pistol.

All four denied the gun was theirs, denied firing it and had inconsistent stories, according to police. 

All four were charged with reckless use of a firearm and carrying weapons.

Additionally, Dantzler also was charged with possession of a controlled substance.
