Davenport Man Facing Charges in Tuesday Night Shooting

A Davenport man is facing multiple charges after police say he shot a man Tuesday night.

Early Wednesday morning, 50 year old James Lee Moore was booked into the Scott County Jail on charges of felony intimidation with a dangerous weapon, felony willful injury causing serious injury, felony possession of a firearm by a felon, misdemeanor assault while displaying a dangerous weapon and misdemeanor harassment of a public official or employee.

At 11:30 Tuesday night, officers responded to the 6400 block of Western Avenue for a report of gunfire. According to an arrest affidavit, Moore fired a gun at the man two times. The man was struck once in the thigh and the bullet became lodged in his leg, causing a broken femur. Officers located two spent .40-caliber shell casings at the scene.

Moore was seen by witnesses on the scene, according to the affidavit. A “show up” at the scene was conducted with an independent witness who positively identified Moore as the shooter, according to the affidavit.

Police say Moore provided a false name and date of birth to officers. He has two prior convictions for second-degree robbery and second-degree burglary and is prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm or ammunition.

Moore is slated to appear in Scott County Court Wednesday via video arraignment.
