Police found spent shell casings on the sidewalk in the 400 block of West Wellington Street across from Elks Memorial Park after a man was shot in the leg on Friday.

WATERLOO — A second person has been arrested in connection with a shooting that injured a man last week.

Waterloo police arrested Mico Rakein Rasharn Lovelady, 24, of Waterloo, on Thursday for willful injury causing bodily injury, going armed, intimidation with a weapon and carrying weapons.

He also was arrested for possession of marijuana after officers found marijuana during the arrest.

On June 16, police arrested Chavontae Charvez Boyd, 22, on similar charges. He remains in the Black Hawk County Jail.

Neighbors called police around 3 p.m. June 16 after hearing gunfire in the 400 block of West Wellington Street. A short time later, 29-year-old Duquin Dwight Fleming arrived at Covenant Medical Center with a gunshot wound to his leg, and officers found two spent shell casings on the sidewalk across from Elks Memorial Park.

Fleming was later released from the hospital.

Police allege Lovelady shot at Fleming, and Boyd acted as a driver.

Court records allege the two went to Wellington Street, and at least two rounds were shot at Fleming.
