UPDATE (10/11/13)

The Scott County Sheriff's Department has identified the man involved in Thursday's shooting as 21 year old Ryan Adam Franklin of Davenport.

Franklin was taken to a local hospital Thursday after being wounded in the incident with police. Authorities say he is being treated and his condition is improving.

The Scott County Sheriff's office continues to investigate. A statement sent Friday says they hope to complete interviews with Franklin and the officers involved by next week. No charges have been filed yet in this case.

Original Story:

Two Davenport Police officers have been put on administrative leave while an investigation into an officer-involved shooting is investigated. It happened in the alley behind some homes Thursday morning near Warren and W. 16th Streets.

Police responded around 8:00 a.m. to a report of an individual prowling around vehicles and garages in the alley. When an officer tried to stop and frisk the suspect, he noticed a gun in the man's waistband. Police say the officer announced, "gun", to warn the other officer. The man then tried to run away and, according to police, started reaching for his gun. Police say the officer took that as a threat and shot the man. The suspect was taken to the hospital where he underwent surgery. There is no information on his condition and police have not released his name.

Police say a 33 year veteran police officer with the patrol division and a 4 year officer with the traffic bureau have been put on leave as part of department policy. Police have not said which officer fired his weapon.

The case has been handed over to the Scott Co. Sheriff's Office and the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation.
