DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

As of Wednesday afternoon, the Dubuque man shot in an incident involving an attempted burglary Monday night is in fair condition.

Court documents show this man is 18-year-old Tanner Ervolino. Documents also allege drugs were involved in the incident.

On Monday night, Dubuque police responded to a report of an attempted burglary with shots fired. Officials arrived at 2759 Ventura Drive, apartment six, at about 10:45 p.m.

Court documents show the tenant of apartment six is 20-year-old Lyle Young.

Details in a search warrant document show Young and 22-year-old Alfonso Faison Jr. were inside Young's apartment when two people knocked on door. According to Faison Jr.'s account in the search warrant, Faison Jr., who has a permit to carry, looked through the apartment door's peephole and didn't recognize the two men who had just knocked. He readied his .380 High Point semi automatic handgun as he opened the door. That's when, according to Faison Jr. in the search warrant account, the two men tried forcing their way in, one of whom was displaying a crowbar in a threatening manner.

That's when Faison Jr. fired shots from his handgun, striking the man with the crowbar - Ervolino - in the left bicep and right wrist, according to court documents.

Ervolino and the other man with him fled the scene, and Ervolino went to Mercy Hospital by private vehicle for treatment, where he was in fair condition as of Wednesday afternoon.

Wednesday morning, Young appeared in court on a charge of Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Deliver, within 1,000 Feet of a Protected Area. Young's apartment is less than 1,000 feet from Fulton Elementary School in Dubuque.

Court documents show Dubuque police officers obtained a search warrant for the apartment after receiving a tip the shooting was possibly drug related. A search of the residence revealed marijuana, paraphernalia and devices used to measure and distribute the drug. Investigators also located a drug ledger identifying people who owed money.

Additionally, court documents show investigators located text messages from Faison Jr.'s phone to Young's phone, in which the two exchange information about drugs, including prices and quantity.
