WATERLOO – A Waterloo teen has been arrested on gang and other charges following a Monday evening shooting.

No injuries were reported, but police said a passing vehicle with three people inside was struck by gunfire in the 200 block of Oaklawn Avenue.

The shooting erupted at about 6:30 p.m. Monday, and witnesses reported hearing about six shots. Police found several spent .45-caliber shell casings in the area, and a witness saw a vehicle driving from the scene and a person throwing a handgun from the vehicle.

Police later stopped the vehicle on West Fourth Street, and witnesses directed officers to the discarded weapon, which was a .45-caliber Hi-Point.

A passenger in the vehicle, Corey Jermaine Dunn Jr., 17, of Waterloo, was arrested for intimidation with a weapon and gang participation. Dunn is being charged as an adult, according to court records.

Police said Dunn is an associate of the OTB street gang, and the shooting stemmed from a feud with a person from another group, court records state.
