Perjury charge leveled in homicide probe

  • 0

WATERLOO - A Waterloo man has been arrested for allegedly making false statements in connection with a probe of an unsolved homicide.

Police arrested Erik Devon Shavers, 24, Wednesday at 310 E. Sixth St. on a warrant for perjury. Perjury is a class D felony punishable by up to five years in prison.

Bond was set at $50,000.

Officers were investigating the Feb. 10 shooting death of Taveros "Dino" Galloway, and Shavers allegedly gave a statement under oath at the Waterloo Police Department in the case in March.

Details weren't available, but he allegedly gave information about what occurred leading up to the shooting.

Police said in court records that the sworn statement was later determined to be false.

Court records show Shavers was arrested on misdemeanor driving charges within days of Galloway's death. He pleaded guilty in May and was placed on probation.

No one has been arrested in connection with Galloway's slaying.

Galloway, 29, was driving his sport utility vehicle in the 500 block of Courtland Street about 11:15 p.m. when someone began shooting.

He was struck in the head by a single bullet, and his vehicle rolled to a stop two blocks away.
