According to Davenport police, they responded to the 6500 block of N. Harrison Street for a report of shots fired in an apartment around 6:46 a.m.

Officers responding to the scene located a gunshot victim, who has now been identified as 45-year-old Sylvester Eddings, whose last known address was in Moline.

Eddings was transported to Genesis Hospital by Medic, where he died as a result of his injuries.

Davenport police said detectives are following up on the incident and no further information was available.

Some residents of the apartments told TV6 they did not hear or see anything prior to police arriving at the scene.

“My kids stay in the house. They don’t go nowhere without me. I have a 15-year-old and twin 13-year-olds and they’re not allowed to come outside here because I feel like, I know it’s not safe out here,” said Jill Keith, who lives in the neighborhood.
