Seven people charged, including teen with attempted murder, after firing gun at a vehicle
TIFFIN, Iowa (KCRG) - Court documents claim a large group of people got together with the plan of assaulting a juvenile. They show it led to two vehicles chasing each other in which shots were fired, and a teenager charged with attempted murder.
The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office says it started around 8:30 the night of October 24, 2022.
The Sheriff’s Office and criminal complaints show the group planned to travel to a home in Coralville to not only assault a juvenile, but others associated with that person. When the group found their intended victims, documents show it then led to a chase down U.S. Highway 6 in the Tiffin area.
The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office says in those documents, a person from the aggressors’ vehicle fired at least 6 shots from a handgun, hitting the other vehicle several times. This was in the area of Highway 6 and Park Road in Tiffin. No one was hurt.
At that point, the vehicles stopped in a yard belonging to one of the victims.
Documents show the aggressors were all wearing ski masks to hide their identities.
On Thursday and Friday, the Sheriff’s Office arrested seven people, all of which face a single charge of participating in a riot. They are:
- Aydin Kutcher, 18, Coralville
- David Love, Jr., 19, Coralville
- Michael Rensing, 19, North Liberty
- Isaiah Scott, 19, Coralville
- Ja’Myrion White, 20, Coralville
- Glenda Reighard, 22, Tiffin
- 17-year-old male
Reighard also faces two other charges, including false information in acquiring a weapon, as well as first offense of transferring a pistol or revolver to a person under 21. Criminal complaints show she bought a handgun on October 2nd at a store in Coralville, and did so intentionally for someone underage, then gave it to that person.
The Sheriff’s Office says the 17 year old also faces a charge of attempted murder in this case. They also say additional arrests are also expected.
Coralville and North Liberty Police, along with the Johnson County Drug Task Force, Joint Forensic Analysis Cyber Team, and Johnson County Attorney’s Office all helped the Sheriff’s Office with the investigation.
