Dubuque PoliceHere is the official news release on the shooting in Dubuuqe last night

On Wednesday, August 9th, 2017, at 8:38 p.m., Dubuque Police responded to the area of 16th and West Locust Street on the report of shots fired. While officers were responding, information was received that Paramount Ambulance personnel were transporting an adult male to Mercy Hospital for treatment of gunshot wounds.

Officers met with the wounded male at the hospital and identified him as Titus D.T. Jarmon, 24, of 562 Almonds Street, Dubuque. He advised he was shot by another adult male with whom he had recently been having problems. Jarmon said he encountered the shooter and another male subject in the area of 16th & West Locust Street and an argument ensued, leading to Jarmon being punched by the shooter’s associate. As Jarmon attempted to flee the area, he was shot twice in the lower body. He continued to run until he located a Paramount Ambulance at 14th Street & Central Avenue.

Traffic camera footage was reviewed and corroborated Jarmon’s account of what transpired. Officers established a perimeter around the area the shooter was last observed and were able to locate him, hiding in the wooded area behind 421 West 16th Street. He was identified as Jevonne M. Coleman, 32, of 306 West Locust Street. Coleman was lying on the ground with his hands concealed. He failed to comply with officers’ commands to show his hands. Officers approached, removed his hands from hiding, and took him into custody. He was also found to be intoxicated. Coleman was charged with Attempted Murder, Possession of a Firearm by a Felon, Going Armed With Intent, Interference With Official Acts, & Public Intoxication.

Attempted Murder is a Class B Felony punishable by up to 25 years in prison. Possession of a Firearm by a Felon & Going Armed with Intent are both Class D Felonies, each punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a fine between $750 and $7500. Interference with Official Acts & Public Intoxication are both Simple Misdemeanors, each punishable by up to 30 days in jail and a fine between $65 and $625. Coleman is currently awaiting his initial court appearance in the Dubuque County Jail.

As with any criminal case, the charges filed are allegations and any suspects are presumed innocent until convicted in a court of law.
