An employee in the Family Self Sufficiency program charged for her role in a shooting, has lost her job.

Karen Jennings, Personnel Administrator for the City of Iowa City, confirms that Mary Agnese Abboud-Kamps' employment has been terminated.

Abboud-Kamps, 54, who was the Self Sufficiency Programs Coordinator, is charged with Accessory to Felony for her role in a shooting at the Ecumenical Tower last month.

Police were called to the Ecumenical Tower at 320 E. Washington Street at 3:37 a.m. on Feb. 21, when people heard what they thought were gunshots.

Police found that 69-year-old Stephen Clark Caldwell had fired the gun in a hallway. They say he had no intended target and no one was injured. There was damage to the inside of the building.

When police asked Caldwell why he fired the gun, he told them, "Who knows."

Caldwell was taken to the University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics for further evaluation and then taken to the Johnson County Jail.

He is charged with Intimidation with a Dangerous Weapon.

During the investigation, police determined that Abboud-Kamps was Caldwell's girlfriend, and during the first series of shots that were fired she was seen on surveillance video leaving the elevator on the first floor and acting as a look-out for Caldwell.

Police say Abboud-Kamps also aided Caldwell's escape by helping him conceal the gun, which police have not found.

Police also say she lied to them by not telling investigators that Caldwell had a gun in his possession as he walked her to her car right after the shooting.
