A 17-year-old has been charged with attempted murder in connection with Sunday night’s shooting in Cedar Rapids. Cedar Rapids police officers interviewed witnesses to the shooting and this morning they went to the hospital to talk with the 38-year-old man who was shot in the stomach.
According to police, the victim and other witnesses identified 17-year-old Tim Reynolds of Hiawatha as the shooter. Reynolds will turn 18 on December 7th and police say he’s been charged as an adult because he’s within six months of his 18th birthday.
Witnesses told police that Reynolds and 38-year-old Christopher Pearson had “an exchange of words” just before Pearson was shot, once, in the stomach.
