Man charged with shooting at vehicle near Davenport park


A Davenport man awaiting trial in two shooting cases is facing new charges after Davenport police say he shot at a vehicle several times near Vanderveer Park in late April.

Investigators say 24 year old Gabriel Juras was booked into the Scott County Jail Monday afternoon on charges of intimidation with a dangerous weapon and carrying weapons. At 8:40 a.m. April 29, Davenport officers were dispatched to the area of Vanderveer Park for a report of gunfire.

According to an arrest affidavit, a man said he was driving when someone in a silver-colored car shot at him. Juras was identified as the driver of the silver vehicle. According to the affidavit, he intentionally fired a handgun at the man as he was driving on 35th and Harrison Streets. Juras fired at least three more times in the area of West Central Park Avenue and Ripley Street, according to the affidavit.

The man’s vehicle was struck at least twice, damaging the front passenger door, rear passenger window, and rear hatch window, according to the affidavit.

A warrant was issued for Juras September 7th, court records show. Bond was set Monday at $10,000 cash or surety. He will be arraigned October 8th.

Juras was arrested in May on a number of felony charges, including intimidation with a dangerous weapon, trafficking in stolen weapons, carrying weapons, and assault while displaying a dangerous weapon in two separate cases.
