Police say gun misfired several times during Davenport shooting

A 22-year-old man was recovering after he was reportedly shot in the back at a home in Davenport, Iowa.

Neighbors had reported hearing at least two gunshots during an altercation and shooting that happened just before 4 p.m. Wednesday afternoon, July 23, 2014 at a home in the 900 block of West 6th Street.

In an affidavit filed with Scott County District Court, investigators said 19-year-old Darvill Bragg, of Davenport, was armed with a revolver when he allegedly opened fire on five people who were on the porch of a house there.

“According to several witnesses, the gun miss fired (sic) several times and then fired at least one round,” the affidavit said.

The victim was shot once in the back.

The victim’s injuries were not life threatening, according to a spokesman for the Davenport Police Department.

The affidavit said Bragg stopped and fired the gun at least three more times as he ran westbound from the scene of the shooting.

After a short foot chase, police caught Bragg at the northwest corner of 8th and Marquette streets.

Bragg was charged with intimidation with a dangerous weapon, willful injury and with a probation violation warrant.

Jail records showed his bond for charges connected to the shooting was set at $20,000; but there was no bond allowed for the probation violation warrant.  Bragg was held in the Scott County Jail.
