Homeless people in an eastern Iowa city are about to be evicted.Davenport Police say they’ll be shutting down several camps of homeless people in the city. But they also promise to work with local social service agencies while doing so. An encampment near the Mississippi River in southwest Davenport was the scene of a brutal murder over the weekend. Two homeless people from Minnesota are accused of murdering a homeless Davenport woman. Chief Mike Bladel says he wants to eliminate homeless camps for everyone’s safety but they can’t just be swept away. He says officers and the public works department will work with the staff of a homeless shelter to develop a protocol to use when transient camps are discovered.
