BETTENDORF, Iowa (KWQC) – Police are responding to calls of a possible shooter in the 4500 block of Utica Ridge in Bettendorf. It appears to have started near the Marine recruiting office located at 710 E. Kimberly Rd. in Davenport around 2 p.m. Monday, Oct. 26, 2015.
A witness tells our sister station TV-6 that he was in the Marine recruiting center when he heard shots fired at a nearby law office. He says he heard screaming and then heard the gunman try to reload his gun. A Marine recruiter told everyone to run. As the witness was running, he said he heard more gunfire. Kimberly Rd. was closed, but has since reopened to traffic.
Police were then called to the Miller Meier business in Bettendorf. A spokeswoman from UnityPoint Health – Trinity Bettendorf says they did go on a brief lockdown, but it has been lifted.
