3 shootings, 2 injured in Cedar Rapids; no arrests

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Police in Cedar Rapids now say three separate shooting incidents over the weekend may now be related to one another.

No arrests have yet been made in any of the shootings as of Monday afternoon, but the Cedar Rapids Police Department are investigating the three as related to one another.

Kendan Fonville, 21, was the first victim, with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. He showed up at Guppy's on the Go at Edgewood and Johnson Ave. NW at around 9:30 p.m. Saturday. Fonville was treated and released at a local hospital, say officials.

A second unnamed adult female was injured when a bullet went through her apartment wall in the Westdale area at 4008 21st Ave. SW around 11 p.m. Saturday. Officials say the injury was only a "burn-type injury from the hot bullet" as it landed between the victim's fingers.

Edward Osborn has been living in neighborhood where the second shooting took place for ten years.

He says the neighborhood is fairly quite, but you still have to be careful, especially with the recent incident around Cedar Rapids.

"You never know what turns it's going to take, you know," said Osborn. "Just pray to the Lord that it doesn't happen to you, take care of business, and don't get in other people's business."

However Jessica Rodriguez says there's a lot of crime in the area. She's most concerned about kids playing outside, especially with the nice weather.

"People could be just inside doing their family things at night and somebody could get hit for no reason," said Rodriguez.

The third shooting at 360 and 362 15th St. SE resulted in no injuries. Two bullets struck the building shortly after midnight on Sunday, according to Cedar Rapids Police.

Cedar Rapids Public Safety Spokesman Greg Buelow says there is likely no connection between these shootings and the shooting in Iowa City Sunday morning.
