DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - One person is in custody following a gunfire incident early Tuesday morning in Davenport.

Danny Darnell Woodcox, 27, of Dubuque, is charged with two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon, a Class D felony punishable by five years in prison; one count of interference with official acts, a Class D felony; one count of fourth-degree theft, a serious misdemeanor; and one count of reckless use of a firearm, a simple misdemeanor.

He is expected to appear in Scott County Court Tuesday morning via video arraignment.

Davenport officers responded around 3:31 a.m. to the 1500 block of North Division Street for a report of gunfire.

According to an arrest affidavit, Woodcox was at the home of the alleged victim and stole a firearm valued around $540.

He fired two rounds into the air from his own revolver, which police also believed was stolen, and left on foot, according to the affidavit.

Officers in a marked squad car pulled up to him and he ran and disposed of the two guns in the backyard of a home before police arrested him.

Woodcox has several felony convictions out of Illinois and is prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm or ammunition, according to the affidavit.

He also has additional warrants out for his arrest, including one out of Rock Island County for failing to appear on a driving while suspended case and one out of Clinton County for failing to appear in a misdemeanor providing false identification case.

No injuries or property damage is reported Tuesday.
