Ernesto Rodriguez-Avila: 

Waterloo man arrested in May 17 shooting

WATERLOO -- One man was arrested Wednesday in connection with an East Parker Street shooting that damaged a vehicle and two houses.

Ernesto Rodriguez-Avila, 19, of 924 Logan Ave., was arrested at home for carrying weapons, reckless use of a firearm and intimidation with a weapon.

Waterloo Police got a search warrant to check Rodriguez-Avila's Logan Avenue home and found weapons they say matched the ones used in a shooting May 17 in the area of East Fourth and East Parker Street.

Police say no one was hurt in the shooting, but bullets damaged a vehicle and two homes in the 100 block of East Parker Street.

A Courier article at the time noted police said 30-year-old Lacoia Green was driving east on Parker Street with passenger Dartavious Dixon, 31, around 1:15 a.m. when the shooting happened.

Investigators found several spent shell casings in the roadway.
