Dubuque Police Seek Help In Homicide Investigation


By Richard Pratt

DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — Nearly a year after 15-year-old Marlon T. Barber Jr. was shot to death in downtown Dubuque, police have made no arrests and are blaming a lack of cooperation among people with information.

The Telegraph Herald reports police believe they know the people involved in the Oct. 20, 2012, shooting of Barber as he and his friends walked away from a party. Barber was shot in the chest and stomach. He died soon after the shooting at a Dubuque hospital. Another teen was hit by gunfire but was treated at a hospital and released.

Lt. Scott Baxter says investigators are still working on the case but have been hindered by a lack of cooperation by "people holding pivotal information."

City Council member Lynn Sutton called upon people to provide information.
