WATERLOO — Two men and two teenagers were arrested Friday evening on murder charges in connection with a July shooting death.
At 5:50 p.m. July 17 Waterloo Police were called to UnityPoint Health-Allen Hospital after multiple gunshot victims arrived there.
Otavious Brown, 21, Dewon Campbell, 17, and Aundrey Roberts, 22, all had suffered gunshot wounds outside 817 Logan Ave.
Brown, who was shot in the chest, died as a result of his injuries. His death was the first homicide in Waterloo in 2016.
Witnesses report seeing a green SUV heading north on Logan and hearing four to five shots. Police confirm they seized a green Chevrolet Tahoe suspected to be involved in the shooting.
Arrest warrants were obtained Friday for four suspects on charges of first-degree murder, attempted murder and intimidation with a weapon:
Shavondes Shavez Martin, 20, of 314 Crescent Place, was arrested in the area of Utica and Edwards streets.
Jacques Dominique Williamson, 25, of 229 Halstead St., was arrested at home.
Armand Isavia Anthony Rollins, 17, address not available.
Doncorrion Deangelo Spates, 15, address not available.
All four had their initial court appearances at 9 a.m. Saturday. Their next court date was set for at 3:30 p.m. Sept. 13.
Williamson and Martin, the two adults, as well as Rollins, are in custody at the Black Hawk County Jail. Spates, who at 15 can’t yet be held in the jail, is in custody at North Iowa Juvenile Detention Services in Waterloo, according to the Waterloo Police Department.
Martin, 20, has been convicted of fighting or other disorderly conduct three times since 2014, as well as assault causing bodily injury in 2014 and two convictions for interference with official acts, as well as possessing controlled substances.
Williamson’s record involves mostly minor charges such as public intoxication, interference with official acts and failure to disperse. His most recent charge was July 17, the night of Brown’s murder, when he was arrested and charged with false report of an indictable offense to a public entity.
Rollins, the 17-year-old, was taken into custody as a juvenile in 2015 for being a felon in possession of a firearm. His last charge was July 25, when he was arrested for a controlled substance violation and being in possession of a false drug tax stamp.
Spates, 15, has no prior convictions. He was charged Jan. 1 of this year with carrying weapons after police were called to a fight at Club 319 in downtown Waterloo. The bar has since closed.
Spates and a brother of Rollins — Demond Deon Rollins, 16 — were arrested Friday as police were coming to arrest Spates at 520 Elm St. Spates and Demond Rollins apparently led police on a foot pursuit before being apprehended in the area of Courtland Avenue and Elm Street.
Demond Rollins, of 209 Thompson Ave., was charged with carrying weapons, possession of a weapon by a felon, interference with official acts while carrying a firearm and possession of marijuana.
According to police, Demond Rollins allegedly was seen attempting to throw a handgun onto the roof of a garage located behind 423 Fowler St. The gun instead hit the side of the roof and fell to the ground next to him.
He was taken into custody with juvenile detention services.
Spates does not yet have any additional charges related to the pursuit.
