Davenport shots fired was alleged drug deal gone bad
Police said a man who thought he was being cheated in a drug deal fired shots at the alleged dealers as they ran from him.
Police were dispatched to the 2000 block of West Fourth Street after receiving several 911 calls reporting the sound of shots fired.
Police said Kevin Green, 28, was trying to buy marijuana from 20-year-old Zachery Labarre and another man in the alley between Fourth and Fifth streets. After handing over $220, Green reportedly realized he wasn’t going to get his marijuana.
That’s when Green allegedly produced a 9mm semi-automatic handgun.
Police said Labarre and the other man ran and Green fired several shots as he chased them. The two men ran inside a house in the 2000 block of Fifth Street.
Green and 19-year-old David Schmidt reportedly took the gun to Green’s house before Green returned to confront the alleged dealers. Police said Green suffered minor injuries when the alleged dealers then assaulted him.
Green, Schmidt and Labarre were all arrested by Davenport Police.
Green is charged with felony assault, felony burglary and conspiracy to commit a felony. David Schmidt was charged with conspiracy to commit a felony. Labarre was charged with conspiracy to commit a felony.
The second person Green allegedly chased was not yet identified.
