Authorities this morning released more details about a shooting Tuesday in Peosta that left one man injured.
Desmond Jimerson, 29, of Manchester, was shot multiple times during the incident, according to the Dubuque County Sheriff's Department. He was taken by ambulance to MercyOne Dubuque Medical Center, and authorities reported that he was in stable condition this morning.
Authorities responded just after midnight Tuesday to 110 Peterson Drive, No. 116 in Peosta for a report of "a possible burglary in process with one subject being shot."
A press release states that Jimerson had been involved in an "earlier disturbance" elsewhere with Rachel Wright, 29, who lived at the residence. Wright returned to the home afterward.
Jimerson also came to the residence and stood outside talking to Marcus Neal, 34, who owned the home. Neal asked Jimerson to leave and tried to close the door, but Jimerson started pushing the door open "to force entry into the residence," the release states.
"Neal subsequently pulled a handgun and shot Jimerson multiple times while Jimerson was inside the residence," the release states.
Authorities said charges are pending against Jimerson in connection with the incident.
Authorities said a person was shot late Monday or early Tuesday during a possible burglary in Peosta.
That person, whose name has not been released, was taken by ambulance to MercyOne Dubuque Medical Center and was in stable condition as of about 8:15 a.m., according to the Dubuque County Sheriff’s Department.
A press release states that the sheriff’s department, Peosta police, Iowa State Patrol and Centralia-Peosta Fire Department responded to the apartment complex at 110 Peterson Drive just after midnight “for a possible burglary in progress with one subject being shot.”
The release states that the person who fired the shot and the person who was shot “share a mutual acquaintance.” Authorities also did not release the name of the person who fired the shot.
Sheriff Joe Kennedy stressed there is no danger to the public because this was not a random act, but he declined to release any additional information.
The incident remains under investigation.
