FORT DODGE, Iowa — The Fort Dodge Police Department has arrested three teenagers they believe were involved in a late July shooting.
Police identified the suspects in a press release, who are charged as adults, as:
- Jamarrion J. Davis, 17
- Patrick E. Walker, 17
- Javen C. Preston, 16
Davis and Preston were taken into custody Thursday afternoon with no struggle. Walker turned himself in only a few hours later at approximately 4:54 p.m.
All three will face multiple charges, including criminal gang participation, intimidation with a dangerous weapon, possession of a firearm as a felon and more.
The arrests come just over a week after officials initially responded to the incident in the 1000 block of South 20th Street in Fort Dodge on Tuesday, July 26 after receiving reports of shots fired in the area.
At the scene, they found a 26-year-old woman who had sustained gunshot wounds and was in critical condition. She was eventually transported to Unity Point Trinity Regional Medical Center for further treatment.
When asked about the current condition of the victim, Captain Dennis Quinn told Local 5, "The last information we received was that [she] was doing well."
Officials believe the incident was "targeted and isolated ... not a random act of violence."
FDPD continues to investigate the incident. Anyone who knows information regarding the shooting is asked to contact the department.
