Sheriff’s office: Man charged with shooting woman in Park View
ELDRIDGE, Iowa (KWQC) - A Clinton man is behind bars after police say he shot a woman in a Park View home Thursday morning.
Christopher Paul Halford, 33, faces of charges of willful injury causing serious injury, a Class C felony, possession of a firearm by a felon, a Class D felony, and assault while displaying a dangerous weapon, an aggravated misdemeanor.
He will appear in Scott County Court Friday morning via video arraignment.
Around 9:11 a.m. Thursday, Halford pointed a loaded firearm at a woman and intentionally fired two shots at her at a home on Manor Drive, according to an arrest affidavit filed by the Scott County Sheriff’s Office.
One of the bullets struck her in the upper thigh, causing a serious injury, according to the affidavit. Deputies said the woman’s injury does not appear to be life-threatening.
Halford has prior felony convictions and cannot own or possess a firearm or ammunition.
Scott County Chief Deputy Shawn Roth told TV6 the woman and Halford know each other.
Deputies said Halford left the home after the shooting and drove to the Casey’s, 26701 Scott Park Road. As deputies pulled into Casey’s, deputies said Halford locked himself in the bathroom before he was taken into custody.
