DAVENPORT -- A man was found with a gunshot wound in a Davenport neighborhood.

Gunfire was reported in the 500 block of West 14th Street just after 9 a.m., Friday, August 18th, according to Lt. Kevin Smull with the Davenport Police Department.

That's where police found the injured man.  He was taken to a nearby hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Groups of neighbors gathered outside to watch officers place evidence markers in the street. One woman, who asked not to be identified, said she was scared for her own safety.

"It's happening everywhere lately. You hear of more shootings and more shootings and more shootings. These kids must be going crazy. I don't understand it," she said, "It's petrifying. Makes you afraid to even go out of your house."

W. 14th Street from Gaines Street to Scott Street was blocked off as police conducted their investigation. Officers later expanded the scene, closing down W. 14th Street all the way to Ripley.

"It's a very dense neighborhood with a lot of people, so we're going house to house and trying to get as much information as we can," said Lt. Smull.

No arrests had been made Friday morning.

Police are asking for anyone who saw anything to report it to them.
