One man was taken to Genesis Medical Center with a gunshot wound after gunfire at Castlewood Apartments on the 2100 block of Emerald Drive, Davenport, about 3:39 p.m. Tuesday.
A heavy police presence remained at Castlewood Apartments late Tuesday afternoon while officers spoke with neighbors and set up crime-scene tape in the area.
“We are going to escalate our police presence in this area,” said Assistant Chief Jeff Bladel, who referred to a previous gunfire incident that happened Saturday, although “We don’t have anything that points that these are connected.”
Upon arrival, officers found a scene outside the apartment complex and a 26-year-old man suffering from a serious but non-life threatening gunshot wound, according to a news release from Davenport Police. The man was transported by Medic EMS for medical treatment.
No other injuries were reported, the release says.
Initial investigation indicates the incident is related to a domestic dispute, the release says. The investigation continues.
We do not know the extent of the man’s injuries or whether police have a suspect in custody. Local 4 News and www.ourquadcities.com will stay in contact with police to provide details as soon as they are available.
