An 18-year-old Davenport man is going to prison for a fatal drive-by shooting. Guilty. That plea, in Scott County District Court, to charges of voluntary manslaughter, intimidation with a dangerous weapon and going armed with intent will send Rasheem Bogan to the slammer.
Bogan was 14 in 2006 when 19-year-old Vincelina Howard was killed in a drive-by shooting in Davenport. Cops say the shooting was in retaliation for another shooting and Howard was an unintended victim. Bogan is the second of four defendants to plead guilty to lesser charges. Appeals brought their cases back to court for retrial.
